Apparently my life of crime earlier this year has paid off. Look what Accu-Santa sent to me! I couldn't believe it when I opened it up! I can't wait to clear off some room and see what this 'baby' can do!

You probably need to eat a lot of delicious candy during your project. Seasonal candy preferred. Stitch all around and then turn your little fellows right side out and stuff.. the last thing you stuff in is a bag of beans, so the bottom is nice and heavy and your gnoma stands up on his own. The biggest two gnomas need a little more than a cup of beans, the smaller gnomas need less.. tiny gnoma needs about half a cup.
Then when they're all stitched up and complete you tie them together. I've shown them here on my bed, standing like little soldiers, but my intention is that they make a cute little draft catcher under a door. But you know, that's not as cute in a picture. At least at my house.
Now these little fellows need more embellishment, I have some bells and pom poms.. but for pete's sake, it's December 8th.. at the rate I'm going ... well you know. I'll trim up the ribbon later.. just so excited to have this almost done!

Stopped along the street on the way home from the market to get a photo of the berries on this tree. I think it's called a strawberry tree, but I'm not sure. I've always loved the fruit, it reminds me of millinery fruit.
The nice gentleman who is the groundskeeper for the apartment complex where this tree is located said it's a real pain though. The fruit is messy and leaves stains on the sidewalks that require frequent power washing. Hmm. I don't need more messy things. I wonder if it's in bush form?
I did do some work on my little project.. but today though I'm off with Elizabeth to meet Nireko for lunch. We're picking up our quilt market samples that we made for the Lecien booth!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!! See you back here next week. xo
