My plan for today involved some beautiful grey silk, a pattern for fabric mushrooms, earring hooks and some relaxing hand sewing. As usual, it all went awry. I was going thru the fabrics 3 days ago and saw the silk in a bag, I thought aha! I know where you are now, I can use you when I need you. I needed it today and it appears that the gremlin has decided it doesn't want it to be used and has moved it to another part of the workshop and I can't find it for love, money, pleading or hysterics. I know I put it on the worksurface by the sewing machine but its simply vanished.
I gave up on my silk mushrooms, having made a note of it in my ring binder/sketchbook/ideas sheet/random scribbling store and came in the house to nearly fall headlong over a potato stolen by willow (our dog) and hidden in plain sight in the middle of the living room floor. After coffee and staring at the potato in a thoughful manner I decided to give up on 3D mushrooms and concentrate on 2D ones I.E a potato stamp which is something I've not done for years, it turned out pretty well, all things considering and I made a pretty piece of hand stamped muslin with mushrooms and butterflies.
Making a potato stamp 101
1: get a potato and cut it in half, 2: draw your chosen design, 3 cut out design and place on potato half, 4: cut around paper with a scalpel and slice off the waste flesh,5: stamp in inkpad, 6:stamp on pabric or paper, 7: iron on wrong side to set
