A Christmas Gnome

 I received this fabulous Christmas gnome from my friend the other day.  I love felting and hand stitching so this is right up my alley.

 Look at the perfect blanket stitching on it. And see the tiny knots on the waste band?

 And the intricate holly and berries stitched on the hat.

 This piece has really inspired me.  I am going to teach myself to felt and to do this kind of stitching.  At least I am going to give it a good shot!

 Look at the tiny details on the back of the hood and the cape.

She is standing in the forest under the big scary witch.  Thanks C!!!!
