Gnomes

Dear Fern,

After a much-too-long hiatus filled with daydreaming and the endless reorganization (erm, cleaning off) of my sewing table, I’ve finally been crafting again! A good friend is celebrating the Festival of Ayyám-i-Há this week and she asked me to create some small gifts for her three daughters. She handed me her copy of Gnomes by Wil Huygen and said, “Make some of your peg people.” Gnomey pegs? Yes, please! And here is how they turned out. I made three pairs. My favorite detail is the gray braids on the girl gnome with just a bit of a blond streak left. I hope they are happy in their new home. There are lots of animals to tend to and of course three girls to play with!

Kindest Regards,

Your Sister-In-Craft, Beetle.

P.S. I also made some little mouse friends to send along with the gnomes. Here is one of them.
