I'm participating in a pincushion swap and this is what I chose to make for my secret partner. I used a pattern by Heather Bailey. My husband named her Amanita Muscaria, after a poisonous mushroom. I hope my partnerperson likes her and gives her a good home. She's a little shy and doesn't make new friends easily, as evidenced by a recent incident in our woods.
Amanita stumbled across a funny little man while out exercising- The Blueberry Man. He was a little startled and scampered up a tree to get to a safe place where the veggie-saurus couldn't get to him.
The view was good from up there, though.
It took a little smooth talking, but he eventually came down and made friends with Amanita.
And they lived happily ever after, until The Blueberry Man's head shriveled up and fell off. Then she ditched him for some younger stud. The End.
(I bought gallons of blueberries today, and when I spotted this one with the 2 eyes, I knew I had to take advantage of it. Pretty cool, huh, the alien eyes?)
