mushrooms on their way

Yesterday I shared a glimpse of a new felted piece I had just completed.  I added a dash of cute to this one in the form of a wee mouse.  Not just any mouse, but my very first mouse.

I made him peeking out of his hole beneath the shade of an amanita.  He peers out with his glass bead eyes, his whiskers a' twitchin'.  He is poised to scamper out and grab some seeds to sock away for winter.  I guess it's a good thing he's trapped under glass. 

In order to avoid using glue in my pieces, I instead drill holes through the wood base (this one a chunk of chokecherry I cut) and sew the scene to it.  It's a bit of extra work, but it's a detail that I think is important.

This teeny pair of mushrooms made their way to my shop yesterday too.

These guys are tucked in amongst the moss and sporophytes, blades of grass and pebbles, set into a chunk of oak I brought in from my woods.

Both of these have found new homes already (thank you, ladies!) but I enjoyed them so much I have a feeling I'll be working on others soon.

All so perfectly gorgeous, that's why they don't hang around your shop, they disappear fast!
