Remember Mitch, my adopted felted mushroom sculpture? I was cheerfully chosen to give his creator, Shana of Woodland Whimsy, a gift for this year's Fantasy Artists of Etsy team's Solstice Swap. After perusing her list of likes, I picked out my purple unicorn bookmark, steampunk unicorn magnet and fairy card to send. But I heard Mitch clearing his throat and knew he had a more creative gift idea in mind. He posed prettily as I drew him playing hide and seek in a patch of orange fungi. He was about as successful at blending in as I was at following the poem rules when writing a cute limerick.
There once was a mushroom named Mitch,
Shaped from felt rather than stitch.
He liked to hide in fungi,
But his eyes shone the lie.
That silly shroom didn't mind the hitch!
