I'm not sure if there is a toadstool utopia, but if there was it might just look like this.
First they would bunch together and have a little chat to each other in a squishy mushroom kind of way. No pushing or shoving, there is plently of room for everyone in this packing box.
Upon arrival they might line up one by one and compare spots...
Then decide which one among themselves would be the best at public speaking....
Then crowd each other again and talk their caps off.
Actually, the box of toadstool houses is sitting beside me while I work and occasionally I open the lid and smile to myself. I spent most of last week stitching these little homes and they will be travelling with me to Fall Quilt Market (Houston) in October and become part of my vignette display at the Lecien booth for the release of Woodland.
I made them in bulk (just over 20 I think?) - hand stitching the doors and windows one night, caps the next, then spots, stems etc....you get the picture. It was my personal toadstool production line or sweat shop and quite fun at the time. From the moment I designed the pattern for Cotton Floss I was wanted to see an entire village and so, here are the cutie patooties.
I am thinking my toadstool utopia will make a fun display and play nicely with my Woodland fabric line, now I am just quietly wondering how many more I can make and squeeze into my case between now and then......yeah, call me crazy girl.
PS. The toadstool house pattern can be found in my book - Cotton Floss, make one, or two dozen - I promise they are so much fun and quick to make!
Post disclosure - no toadstools were harmed during this photoshoot :)
