Gnomes

Quite a while ago I read this book:

gnome

I wanted to immediately launch myself into a life of gnome-making, but that didn’t immediately happen, and I forgot about gnomes for a little while.

Yesterday I decided it was finally time to take the plunge. I bought the supplies I was missing and dedicated myself to needle felting gnomes.

Meet Bigols the Gnome (my dear husband named him).

finished

Bigols was very excited to enter this world. He immediately took an interest in many things.

Making gnomes is addicting. Pretty soon Bigols had a brother, Igze.

And soon after that their gypsy sister entered the scene.

Help! I am being taken over by the gnomes!!
