I had sworn to myself that I would never make mushrooms. Just because I thought that the amazing Stephanie Congdon Barnes had sort of put a period on the sentence devoted to plush mushrooms in the crafting world. No, not a period, an exclamation point. Three of them even!
However, a recent trip to the Cevennes where for two entire days the talk and the food had centered around "les champignons" got me thinking again. That, and at a friend's house leafing through a book whose title I had forgotten to note down, but whose pictures devoted to beautiful fungi I can't get out of my mind.
So, today being a Sunday, I gave myself some time in my studio and harvested these from my brain.
