These two are par of a large group of gnomes who will be participating in the Fibre Arts Festival in Amherst Nova Scotia in October. I'm sharing two of the little guys with you, This pattern was created by Sindy at Fat Cat Patterns. I've made the small and medium sizes, and there is a large as well, but he is not part of my group
These fellows can be used for pincushions, or companions. Cute aren't they
I don't know what some people mean when they say "dog days", but for me they are those very hot stretches you may get in the month of July. We have had unseasonably warm weather "a heat wave" even for almost a week. I know that for some, a week of heat and humidity is nothing, but if you are a Maritimer in Atlantic Canada, we feel it. . The humidity is a slasher.
I am going to try to line up my little bear family if possible tonight. I will grow only if I try.
January we celebrated the colour RED
February our little rocket boy was blue
This month of March a little yellow bear came skipping along as we celebrated the colour YELLOW
Then April arrived and the colour ORANGE had its turn
The little GREEN bear of May is ready for any new adventure
And this guy is showing off his beautiful PURPLE suit.
I really wish I could put them all in a lovely row, but there are many limitations to what I can accomplish, and this is one of them. I'm currently working on my yellow green bear, but he's not finished so he will wait for another time
