Usually I release a pattern on Tuesday...that's my goal. This Tuesday, I missed my personally-set deadline. Mostly it was from having my parents in town this weekend...pouring the concrete for our new back steps...
and Fibertastic on Saturday too. So I didn't finish, but I did get a lot done. I finished an entire Gnome!
At the suggestion of my pal Claire of little lovelies handmade...I finally got around to making a gnome. Good idea Claire! It came out super cute, I think. I am debating on whether to add a belt or stitching on a smile. I am not sure if a smile would even be visible under all of that beard.
I'm also making a mushroom for good measure. I think a 3rd thing would be good too...maybe even a lady gnome. But, we'll see.
So this pattern won't be released until a week from now, but there will be extra goodies to go with him as a bonus for your patience.
As for tonight...I'm ready for a drink.
PS...to all my new readers+commenters;
WELCOME! So glad to meet you all and I hope you stick around for the fun this year!
