I Gnome you are the one for me!

My handsome nephew and his beautiful fiance got this married this past weekend in Vermont.

The festivities started Friday night, but I planned to arrive Saturday for the wedding 
so on Friday I got busy with a project that I found years ago on 

Weewonderfuls is one the first blogs I found years ago when I first discovered the land of blogs!!
Hillary Lang is a talented artist with a wonderful blog with wonderful patterns to choose from.

My nephew has a fun personality and has been "gnome" to take a few in his travels, but only to return them later with photos of all the fun travels they had!
So when I saw this pattern for Mr. and Mrs. Gnome, I had to buy it!

I have to say these were even more fun to make than I thought!
It reminded me of Colorforms!!

Remember these!!

: )
I pulled out my featherweight and my favorite sewing basket from
A Christmas gift from my creative sister!
I love it so much I keep the tag on! 
: )

and the fun begins!

Actually when I cut out all my pattern pieces and got ready to start the first thing it said on the directions was

"Here we go..."

and that is exactly the frame of mind I was in!

Getting ready for some test stitches!
It has been some time since I have sewed!

I added my own touch of ribbon to Mrs. Gnomes outfit : )

Mr and Mrs. Gnome ready for the trip to Vermont!

I will blog about the trip to Vermont soon and share with you the beautiful Bed and Breakfast I stayed at and a beautiful store to poke around at right next door!!
Happy Weekend!
: )


  1. Happy weekend to you too Elizabeth! Your gnome's are adorable. I envy you for sewing this good!

  2. Thank your Esther! Actually, this pattern is not complicated but so much fun to make! : )
