toadstools

Watching Martha Stewart, and they’re making these:
Toadstool

rather cute…and the dots are needle felted, how appropriate! If it weren’t so chilly today, I’d go forage in the forest for a fallen tree and get Jay out there with the chainsaw! Toadstool seats for the Thanksgiving guests!

Jencorace

I wish I could get into the city to see this Doubtful. But oh my. Jen Corace is the best. This painting reminds me of my favorite illustrator of all time, Gladys Peto. I’ll post some of her stuff soon. Really inspiring.

Anyway…I’m off to make numerous lists detailing the gazillion things that need to be accomplished by next week. blah!

  1. I watched Martha making one of the stools too.
    They are just adorable and look so easy to make.

  2. Looking forward to the promised Gladys Peto post – I have loved her work since I was a child and spent hundreds of hours gazing at the illustrations in her 1931 Bedtime Stories (which my mother was given when she was 5). Just putting together a piece about her for my own blog, which will appear in the next few days.
