After working on this pattern for a while I finally finished it today. I remember as a child loving to draw little houses for mice inside of hollow logs or tree stumps. I just love this. To bad I have boys!  Plus I used a recycled empty gallon milk jug for the house's framework

That is such a cool idea!  It looks adorable. Man I really need to learn how to crochet, I have kidlet that would flip for it.

Why do some people think being a parent is only something to do when it is convenient for you?

ahw how cute where did you get the fairy pattern from?

There will always be people who say mean words  because you are different, and sometimes their minds cannot be changed. There are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. THOSE are the people whose WORDS truly matter.

I kinda made the fairy pattern up. I started with making a ball for the head and then went into shoulders and into a body shape. The body is actually a rectangle, with a skinny part hooked to the head. the arms and legs are basically the same longer tubes sewn onto the body. Since I sewed her clothes onto her body I can't be too more specifiic with counts and such.  She is made like Amigurumi are made.

Very cute -- and I bet your boys could find ample use for the log house...just don't include the fairies and mice.  Well, maybe the mice, depending on how old the kids are....
