Make and Listen







Making:

~ Valentine's Day gnomes, a custom order for a friend

~ seasonal nature table gnomes...spring, summer, autumn and winter, a custom order for a friend

~ the back of the summer gnome

~ Valentine's Day gnomes, a little surprise for my little man and his little friend that joins us in our homeschooling adventures

~ my current knitting project, a shawl

~ little hands were busy making snow crystals this week, as well as a ton of paper snowflakes

Listening:

~ the sound of the birds outside our kitchen window is making us smile these days

~ Diana Krall often joins me in the kitchen during meal prep

~ Sunday mornings are all about back in the day on the radio, how I love hearing the music of my youth

    The birds have been (they always are) popular to spy and listen to here.

  10. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you for all the gnomes you have made us! Between the math gnomes, the Valentine gnomes and now the seasonal gnomes we are in our glory! I was thinking that I should have asked you to felt a snowflake or two on the winter one (though maybe that would have been tricky to get it to look right)! Snowflake or not they are all just perfect and I love that it means we have a little bit of you here with us! Thank you, dear friend, for being willing to make all my gnomey dreams come true! xoxo

    1. Oh Shel, I am just so happy you guys like them so much. And yes, a snowflake would have been lovely on the winter gnome. I will make sure to bring my felting tools when we meet up :)
