More Fungi..

More photos than words today..

The second 'fungi scarf' was a little shorter.. and bolder :)

I don't have a photo of this one 'on' yet.. and the weathers too dull this morning to take one.  It does look pretty round the neck though :)

The third was autumn coloured.. I was working with the fibre shades I had to hand.

This was the fungal inspiration..
I now know this is turkey tail fungus - thank you Kerry :)
Laying out the layers with bubble wrap between 
Wetted and carefully rubbing..
forgot to take progress pics after this :)
Close-up of finished ruffles
I love seeing them rolled up like this :)
Another terrible selfie!
This is a pretty long one.. it loops round the neck 3 times
This one seemed to take aaaages.. I was so glad when it was finished!

Such beautiful scarves, the second one is my favourite, the grey / brown combination is fabulous!

Thats really gorgeous! Have you ever seen 'felt' made out of mushrooms? I once met a woman who had a hat and she said it was a felting process done with mushrooms.
