Cocktail friday..which generated mushrooms...



so I have been having such fun...oh how I love lino cuts. I saw this and tried to reproduce it. http://www.flickr.com/photos/tyr_stockholm/8620041338/ but my skills are not that good and my lino cutters are rubbish, they are too coarse (where I can get some fine ones???)

anyway the chanterelle mushrooms looked awful but I kept going, but once I had them printed on fabric I LOVED them!!

this is a close up, I cut all three separately so I can use them individually.





this was/is! my friday..




I made more!!

AWESOME!! I've loved all of your recent prints but I think this is my favorite! They look so great together. They'd be adorable on a flour sac tea towel!

thanks guys... sheepblue, I have no idea what to do with them, I just woke up this morning thinking that I want to make some more...! I was thinking that if I had enough different pieces they could be turned into a pretty cool quilt...

I have bought a tiny new house recently, to live in during the work week etc...so it will need a new quilt for the bed and cushion covers etc etc....so plenty of excuses to make more. My problem is coming up with inspiration in the first place.

Wow! I loved the flamingo fabric, but these mushrooms are over the top! And, I love that you carved them separately so you can vary the design. And, now that I know that, I'm even more impressed with how well you did the repeat on the first fabric. Smiley

Ordinarily, I would not recommend wine and sharp carving implements (or even dull ones), but in your case, it seems to be a winning combination! Smiley

Edel, it's a good thing that you live an entire continent away (well, just before you get to the other continent, anyway), because I wouldn't be able to resist dropping by, shaker in hand, every Friday. For me, cocktails tend to interrupt creative crafting, but they seem to inspire it for you!

It's not just your lino cutters that are crap - they all are. I just use woodcarving gouges instead. They're sharper, and come in a better selection of shapes and sizes. And you can get tiny ones that are perfect for those fine lines. This is the set I use, but I'm sure something similar is available there.

These are my favorites (next to the flamingos... Grin)...!

Edel...Do you have a beauty supply store?  I have found the best tools that manicurist use...there is one that carves the thinnest of lines (meant to cut cuticles!)...and while there, I found at least four of five other things rather cheap but super adaptable to stamp carving...

You should be able to find a UK location since these seem to be universal tools...I bought all I needed for about $6 US...they had bins and bins of goodies that could be used for crafting... Grin...I wonder if the gals on the beauty board would know of more possible tools that could be used for carving?

I need to pop over and ask! Grin

These are SO great!  I especially love the purple one where the mushrooms are marching across in single file.  Such would be great around the hem of a skirt or dress or even a table cloth or curtains.

Ha! so do I, I was in the recent fabric printing swap...so I am going to wait for another and then do a quilt..one panel for each fabric...Mind you if I get mad inspiration, I might just print a load of panels of one theme and see how that goes!...
