An Old Gnome got a new coat of paint and a view of my studio

Many years ago, I bought a vintage gnome at a garage sale.

Rather liked that he had weathered off all his paint, and yet was still steadfastly all in one piece.

Last month, when I was weaving hearts for the window, I decided to add gnomes to the window, and the old fellow didn’t look cheerful enough to add to the gaity.

So I painted him:

It struck me as being odd that he didn’t have a mustache, so I added one, using my much loved old ‘Gnomes’ book as a guide.

I tried to add the Bunny to the window, but he’s too big and floppy, so he’s sitting in a corner of the studio instead.

I designed him many years ago for Canadian Living magazine.

Here’s a link to the pattern for him and his sweetheart: KNITTED BUNNIES

And, then, I took pics of some of the other things in that corner of the studio.

Including a little video:

And then I totally forgot to blog about Gnomes and Bunnies and looms.

It’s a crazy time.

Hope you are well ❤
