Toadstool Cottage and Mushroom House Pattern

The Little House by the Sea blog has a painfully sweet Toadstool Cottage and Mushroom House pincushion pattern and tutorial up. Check out the detail on the embroidery around the door and windows:

I’d like to visit whoever lives inside! There’s even a Flickr group to post your own version when you make it.

I'm a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. I was an editor on the first 40 volumes of MAKE, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. In particular, covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.
