Here is our antique mower:I believe it is dated 1929. I wanted to get a nice photo of it amidst our dandelions, but it's way back in the corner of the garage, hemmed in by bikes and scooters and too many other things to move out of the way just for a photo shoot.
I made this little dandelion doll for my husband a few years ago, using a kit I bought through Magic Cabin Dolls. He appreciated the joke! My doll-making skills are hit-and-miss, but I had good luck with this one.
Here is my less-than-lucky attempt at making a toadstool, following Lucykate's tutorial:
She set up a toadstool swap, and I was sorely tempted to join, but after my practice toadstool I chickened out. I have some ideas for how to improve my next toadstool, and if I get a chance to try again, I'll be sure to share results. (I do like the fabric I used for the stem with this one! It makes me smile just to look at it.)
