During November and December, I made a whole gang of Merry Mushrooms for gifts and for our Christmas tree in 2012. With moving so close to Christmas in 2011 we didn't actually get a tree set up, so I have a feeling that this year, our Christmas decorations are going to be a BIT more extravagant. ;) I guess I do have all year to prepare, right? I seriously must have made about 20 or so mushrooms when all was said and done. I finally got to the point where I had to tell myself to just stop already (about the time when I started to feel like the crazy mushroom lady!).
I really had a blast though picking out the colors and the embroidery styles, especially making them personalized. Here is a selection of some of my favorite mushrooms out of the ones I actually remembered to photograph before sending/giving. I thought it might be nice to photograph them in their natural environment during a 30 min window of sunshine last week. :) Ah winter in the Pacific Northwest!
