Inspired by Nature - Fungi




Back in October of last year, I shared this picture of fungi on a tree with my facebook friends.  I thought it was most unusual with all the ruffles.  Sheri Selles Lesser also commented about the scarf and gave me a link for a scarf pattern.  I was intrigued and downloaded it from http://www.redheart.com/free-patterns/curly-swirly-scarf. 




Several weeks later I bought some yarn and a hook.  I could not find where my old one was stashed.  Too many years between crocheting projects!   As my life goes, the pattern and the yarn and hook sat in a sack for a few more weeks.



This past Wednesday I started to crochet and this is the finished product!  Not bad!  I also had a photo shoot for my jewelry and had the model wear the scarf so you could see it on her.  You should check out her company "Twitterpated"  by Ashley Spicer.  Very talented lady! http://www.etsy.com/shop/beTwitterpated?ref=seller_info
When I got home, I could not resist hanging the scarf on a tree.  See how nature inspires me?  And what a laugh I had!
