I tested this adorable pattern this week. I wasn’t able to give it my all as it turned into a busy hectic week and I got a touch stressed by life. However the pattern was easy and forgiving and come together so well. The embroidery details are delightful and fun to sew. There are 3 sizes. All adorable.

Actually it was a little win I needed!

I did the large which turns out a really decent size (mine will become a door stop for madams room). It really is a pattern where your imagination is the limit – some of the testers created the most amazing ‘shrooms. The details, colour and stitching blew me away. They are great stash busters for bits and pieces of felt or wool or even calico or fabrics. My daughter wants a minky one for bed!

These would make the most lovely gift for anyone big or small. They would be adorable as a decoration in a nursery or to create  warm cottage feel in a home and are designed to be functional, robust and stimulate imaginative play in children as well. How cute would a little village of them look?

Check out Big Little on Etsy and have a look at her wonderful patterns. Lisa is generously offering 50% off the Toadstools pattern until the end of the week. Use the code TOADSTOOL50 and you will only pay $3.75 (USD)!
Grab the Toadstools – you won’t regret it!

A rather late selection of pics from last weekends trip up to the hills and rocks of Castle Hill. Hubby gets the kudos for 99% of these images.
It was a great day out, so much fun but very hot. We ate apples and oranges and fresh ham in the shade of huge monolithic rocks. Smallest climbed and climbed. And slid and slid her way down on her bum.
We walked a new route round. Longer but interesting. We found the best spot for echoes and I can confirm that “let it go’ doesn’t actually sound that great in a round.

Climbing rocks in the hills – she wore through an brand new pair of leggings right through the arse. It was worth it to see her happy face and pure joy.
