Secret mushroom fairy house - peacock blue top
This pincushion has a dark peacock blue top with a red and white mushroom fairy house protected from prying eyes by the trailing branches of a weeping willow tree. The mushroom fairy house has a little arched door and and a tiny round window. Is there dew drop wine in acorn cups on the table, sweet honey cakes served on a dried leaf? Maybe, probably.... The deepest, quietest part of the forest is not a safe place for human folk. It's a place where realms overlap and time slips by differently. It is never a good idea to eat the tempting juicy berries or drink from the crystal clear spring. Here, there is magic in the shadows and all manner of forest creatures share the shifting realms with mystical folk.
This pincushion measures 3.5inches across and stands approximately 2inches tall. The top is peacock blue, the side is dark forest green with three tiny mushrooms and the underside is red. As always, all the felt shapes including the tiny flowers and mushroom spots are cut freehand! All felt used is 100% merino wool and my pincushions are stuffed with premium polyfil.
