and gnomes too

E chose to do two gnomes yesterday while W chose a bear. This morning as soon as they woke up they wanted to do more felting. We now have a whole...flock?...passel?...gaggle?... gathering of gnomes in various stages of completion. There are big plans in the works to create a whole village of felted people. I'm working on them to consider a Star Wars theme (I want to make Chewie ) or at least a Harry Potter theme. What fun! Isn't it amazing what you can do with a bit of wool and a (sharp!!!) needle.

Uh, yeah. My fingers know all about the sharp needle. One of the hazards of visiting while felting, but well worth it.

Those gnomes are very cute. Maybe E can teach L & me to make them - I can do a whole cast of Lord of the Rings ;-)

Your blog looks lovely. Great gnomes! I think Daniel would love to make more. Let's do it again next week :-). I am with you on the Star Wars thing.

Yes, what you can do. I don't think I could do it, I haven't a lot of patience for anything like this. I am really looking forward to seeing the gaggle of gnomes in their finished state. x

Ohh, I want to learn to make gnomes too! Zara's also wanting to continue felting, but we need to learn to make more than wool beads!

These gnomes are so cool! I really do think the boys should turn their talented hands to making some Jedis.

We had one more gnome join our flock the next morning too. But much bigger than the ones we made at your house. I need to get the sizing down right!
SO cute!

I believe the term is hoard. You have a hoard of gnomes (or Guh-nomes as we say, much like "Kah-nig-hut" for knight).

Lovely addition to your family!
