Mushrooms and toadstools must just call out to stitchers, because a scan through the &Stitches Flickr pool shows them to be a recurring theme in embroideries of all types. And why not really, they're so adorable and versatile! In just this little group, we have stumpwork, a 3-dimensional piece, a tiny toadstool decorating a practical item, mushrooms with personalities, and fantastical mushrooms in bright and unexpected colors. It's amazing that each of them is instantly recognizable as a toadstool, or mushroom, but they all have their own unique style. Kind of makes you want to go stitch some mushrooms and see how yours come out, doesn't it?
