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
