I experimented a little with this look,
and decided I liked the finish.

I'm always watching for mushrooms...
these are a few found in our back lawn
and the bottom one 
was spotted by a friend, in their back lawn.

Enjoy your day...

  2. My husband has picked mushrooms with his grandfather and father until they passed. He advised not eating these! I love the double blanket stitch.
