I do a few blogs on blogspot and thought I would share my little gnomes home spot. I started this blog to showcase our home and my gnome garden and you will find photos there in previous posts of the different parts of our place. I am also showcasing my hooked rugs but only have some of my latest ones up there..The ones I've done years ago, I have not put up photos. I love working with my hands and making little whimsical things. I decided to make a little pin cushion and used an old zinc canning lid for the base. The material I love working with the best is wool. Since I have a big stash of wool fabric, I look for other ways to use it besides hooking rugs. I hand dye most of my own wool though use alot of "as is" wool. I buy woolen clothing in thrift shops in the winter and then order only white, black or red online. I live in too temporate a climate for fabric stores here to sell wool. Anyway I hope you like my little gnome pincushion.
