I suddenly got right back into makingness. It’s mainly the fault of people who felt Mr Gnome needed a Mrs Gnome. I was worried he would get lonely if I wasn’t speedy, so….:
Meet Mrs Gnome.
Then I thought they needed a gnome home, so I made one of those too (well, decorated the twig wreath):
It’s early days, but they do seem quite happy:
Mrs Gnome was made using the same pattern that clever Miss Neriss made for Mr Gnome. You can find it here.
I also decided to make a penguin for Small Boy as he seems to rather like them. I didn’t have a pattern, which resulted in much grumpiness in trying to get matching feet and some sort of Christmas miracle when the wings matched:
He seems like quite a happy penguin.
Next up…more mince pies, I think :o)
