"Every mushroom is edible, once."

Every mushroom is edible, once.
That's a quote from one of the longtime members of our local mushroom club.

I heart snarky mycologists. Reminds me of something our friend/family doc said, "The bleeding always stops." Dark, I know, but it is Creepy Craft month over here at Green Kitchen and I do like a little macabre and cheese now and then.

Anyhoo, the mushroom is for Sonya's Handmade Mushroom Swap. Specs: All hand-stitched, vintage outer. Cotton floral cap with solid cotton gills. The stipe is 100% wool, as is the stuffin'. Accented with vintage millinery flowers.

I know I swore off swaps, but the allure of the mushroom was too great.

How did I miss this one?! I would have loved to do this.
I tried to crochet one the other day, but it was a failure. Your shroom looks awesome!

It's beautiful Michelle.
So is the photo.
The last post's photo really caught Annie's attention. Now she's not sure if you really brutally cut off tails.

That mushroom is the cutest! Did you make the pattern yourself or find it somewhere?

Whoa, I didn't realize that you swore off swaps. I am such the enabler. Can't wait to see these mushrooms in the flesh! (in the vein of creepy)
