My mum is obsessed with mushrooms.
She has a mushroom tattoo on her arm.
She uses mushrooms for a lot of different things – she’s been an avid mushroom eater and loves mushroom recipes and art.
I’m fascinated by mushrooms and all that they represent – I’ve got a tattoo of a mushroom on my arm and it says, “Mushroom.”
I have a mushroom stencil on my chest, it says “MUSHROOM”.
I’m very curious about all the different types of mushrooms.
And then I’ve been wanting to do something with the mushroom stenchers.
I just want to be able to do the embroideries on the back.
So, one day I was just thinking of this, and I thought, “Why don’t I just make a stencil for a mushroom?”
And I said, “Oh, I’ve heard of mushroom embroiders.”
And I just thought, why not?
And I started to work on it.
And I think that it really helped me to feel a bit of freedom when I started, because I could be like, “You know what?
I can actually do this,” instead of being like, ‘No, no, no.
And I could just do this thing.
And now, I just can’t wait to try and create more of these.
They’re just so much fun.
I’ve just been a fan of the mushroom embroidchers for a long time.
They are so beautiful.
So you know, I’m trying to get them made up, so I can get a couple more tattoos.
I don’t know how long I’ll be able the embroiderers.
I think I can do a couple of more for Halloween, just to see how people react to them.
But the stencil is so awesome, it really suits me.
I have it embroidered on my forearm, and it’s just this wonderful little thing that I’m just going to try to get into my hands.
It’s so funny, because my mum is a mushroom fan, so she makes these stenciles for me.
And she’s so proud of them.
She’s just like, you know what, this is the best thing that’s ever happened to me.
So I just started making them up.
I’ll just have to keep doing them.
I love mushrooms, I love making these things and I love doing them, but I’m not going to stop.
I am still going to make them up, because it’s such a fun, wonderful, colourful thing.
You know, you could do them all day.
It would be really fun to go to the pub with them.
They would make your pub look amazing, I would love to do them.
If I can make one, I’ll go.
I can’t stop, I still have it.
