Last night it was almost set out in the yard for the raccoons but today I worked on it some more and now I love it. It needed color so I added a small branch with a bright green leaf. Then I decided to add two of my amanita muscaria. The colors all popped and it was just how I imagined it. I might still add some other fungus, the kind that grows on the side of fallen decaying logs… We’ll see. I can see this being another never ending piece.
I had lots of help from my friend Kelly who spent 9+ hours stitching black lines for me. My friend Anna knit the tiny little slug, bumblebee, mushrooms and snails. I don’t even want to add up the hours that have gone into this piece between the three of us. I think it was worth it.
Yay. This is my last piece for Plush You! I’m done. Now to finish the pieces for Parklane!
