I made a little mushroom house stuffie/decoration as a Mother's Day gift for my mom.  It was my first embroidery project.

The finished product.

Detail shots.

I used the Mushroom House pattern from the little house by the sea.  Here are some progress shots (click the thumbnail to embiggen the image).

Stitches and techniques I used include French knots, bullion knots, stem stitch, detached chain stitch/lazy daisy, split stitch, running stitch, and seed stitch.  I am pretty pleased with how the project turned out, and most importantly, my mom adores it.  My cousin (who is about my mom's age and close to her like a sister) was also so taken with the little house that she commissioned me to make one for her.  She offered to pay me, but I said I'd do it for free.  However, she noticed that I was admiring an antique tweed train case at a shop we were visiting and purchased it for me as a form of payment for the mushroom I'll soon be making her.  Hooray!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Thanks!  I'm hoping the one I make for my cousin will turn out even better.
