A walk in the woods

Is it because of all the rain and damp weather the last two months, but there are mushrooms everywhere in our garden.
I really don't dare to pick and eat them, I heard on the news that there were more cases of poisoning this year then normal (here in Belgium, don't know about the rest of Europe). My grandmother knew enough about mushrooms to use them in the kitchen, and it's a shame that I don't have that knowledge...

Link of the week

What a great idea, wish I had come up with this:
A Collection a Day, 2010
I did my collection of today: the content of my handbag, before I cleaned it up:

And the same content, after I sorted out everything, ready to be put in another handbag.

So sorry for the poor quality of my pictures, there has almost been no daylight the past week. I guess this was the gloomiest summer ever...

August/September update

Slooowly....very slowly, I will get there and make this cross-stitched cat into a little cushion!

Green rabbit

I couldn't resist: I bought another stuffed toy from Pussman.
This time a green rabbit, made of mohair. Danielles stuffed animals always have a lot of detail and are made with a lot of love. As I have so much work till the end of September, I decided to do a one evening project, and I crocheted a pair of trousers for this cutie.

A detail of the back:

Now I want to make a little smocked dress (never did smock in my life, but one can always try...), a knitted sweater, a little embroidered blanket maybe... Maybe in October?

This little rabbit has no name yet, I decided it to be a girl (because of the dresses I want to make).
Any suggestions?
