I found these very jolly fellows here. They reminded me I must try and make a gnome brooch as suggested by Silly Gilly in my "think of a new Betty Jo design" giveaway.
I have had quite a few garden gnomes in my life but I only have one left. Mmmm, I really don't know where the others have gone. This guy was a gift from a student in my first year of teaching. (so that goes back a really long time) It was only later I guessed it was probably nicked from someones garden.
And here is my gnome...his name is Louis.As usual I have been drooling over Made with love by Hannah's skirts and have decided this one is on my new wish list. With two gnomes and toadstools!As I was typing this I was hearing the theme song and words to "Paulus the Woodland Gnome" in my head.I seriously believe this could be one of my earliest memories!
