Gnome

We have a great community centre on our little town that organises an activity every Monday morning and a creche for the children. Last Monday it was felting so I managed to get out of the house and get there not too late. We made little gnomes. It was fantastic - there was no easing into it and only making a flat piece or something really basic. It was straight away here is a gnome let's make one. The picture is not brilliant as somehow we have gone back to winter and outside is grey, dull and rain. The only good thing is I'm not so stressed about stepping on the snake that was out the front last week.

He is very cute. It is great when you do a class that dives right in.

Oh he is so cute. Is needle felting that easy to do. I got a needle felting kit for my birthday but havent used it as yet. I should get some fleece to use I suppose and then I could try out some cute things too. I dont like the thought of a snake in the garden, poor you.

You stepped on a snake??? Euoooo! Just seeing one freaks me out. I guess you see them frequently. We do see brown snakes here in Adelaide, but not too often. (Once or twice a season in this part of suburbia)

ooooooh! I love him. The gnome, that is. Not the snake.
