But is it a Miller, clitopilus prunulus (edible) or a
clitocybe dealbata (deadly poisonous)?
FL is collecting a spore print to check. Pink for edible, white for deadly. Fabulous! I won't be eating it either way!
Meantime, I spent Saturday having a cleaning frenzy after discovering that the bookcase was covered in green mould.
Ah - that's better! Cleanliness is resumed.
But it meant my sewing time was severely curtailed.
And the Brighton Pavilions tunic plan ground to a halt when John Lewis wanted to charge me £5 for a zip. Seriously!
So while I wait for eeebaaay to deliver, I have been working on another vintage blouse.
I am using the plum poplin from Little Shop of Treasures, which is pleasingly crisp, but having a very tight weave it demands the use of sharp new pins and needles.
I am pleased with how it is going, but it is a very time-consuming design, with a vented fold-back cuff and buttoned tab at the collar.
It will be hidden from view in the finished garment, so has provoked puzzlement from the family. Why am I bothering? A difficult question to answer... I suppose I am thinking of it as a tattoo. I copied the rose from a Valentine's card I made for FL a few years ago.
I ran out of daylight today so the blouse is unfinished - hopefully I will get it done later this week.
