Mushroom season is just beginning in the higher elevations and I love to forage for the elusive Morel Mushroom.

Morel Mushrooms

My husband Russ and I have learned to hunt above 3,000 feet as Russ has never met a poison oak plant that hasn’t found a way to his body.  I am transformed when I enter the forest.  It is the one place I seem to be able to let my mind relax and take in the sights and smells of the earth and tree’s.

I am fascinated with the look, shape and texture of morels.  Everything about them suggests earthy and organic.  I wanted to honor the morel by incorporating the texture of the mushroom into my nuno felt.  I started with a circular shape and cut out a spiral pattern.

I used silk, merino wool and wool yarn to create the pattern.
