Hi everyone! Long time lurker, first time poster. I love this forum, it is so inspirational, I share ya'lls completed projects with my husband, who got a kick out of the Star Wars and Lord Of The Rings Amigurumi dolls! I even have my Mom addicted to these forums as well, there are soo many talented folks here!

Here is my first attempt at anything like this, my mushroom  house! I made it out of 100% recycled cashmere yarn, no reason really, it is just the only yarn I have been collecting for the past several years so I just have a large variety of colors available.

Anyways, here it is:

Hi! And thank you so much for the compliments! Part of it is stuffed, the house and the trunk of the tree.

I love to crochet, my mom tried to show me when I was young how to do it, but I never could get past the chaining part! Then when I was about 25 years old, (9 years ago), she sat me down and showed me how again and it finally clicked! And I have been a crocheting fool ever since!

 Your house is fantastic! I love the details on the lawn and the roses climbing up the side of the house.

Thanks you all!

My next one that I have already started is going to be a lake front with a dock and a boat, a patio, hammock, etc. and the colors of the house are going to be blues and greens.
