Here I am crafting away in my country kitchen. Notice all the special holiday gnome decorations! This is from a hilarious book my Mom just brought over from the library, The Gnomes Book of Christmas Crafts by Carol Endler Sterbenz, c. 1980. And while I won't be making any puffy ruffly ribboned gnome pillows (why was 1980 so puffy!), I will be working on the pattern for the gnome dolls today. We're going to make it a downloadable PDF pattern so it will be available in plenty of time for holiday gift making.
Ok, time to get off the computer and get my ruffly apron on!
