Britta and I were chatting the other day, and she said she was ready for a make-over. We had tons of fun deciding on a new style, and then we both got busy stitching away. I think she looks lovely! Next week she'll model for many more photos and I'llRead More →

Yes… we realize these are rather simplistic gnomes, but that’s the point. These Simple Little Gnomes are a wonderful project for beginning sewers be they six or 60! By using a running stitch to attach the face to the gnomes, and an overcast stitch to sew it all together, evenRead More →

I’ve had a very busy week and Michelle has been doing a great job of holding down the fort. I do have a couple of things to share this week. First, a couple of weeks ago, one of our readers shared an Etsy shop with us on Facebook, specifically the artist’s littleRead More →

Anyone who knows me well, knows I NEVER make “just enough” food for dinner. When I make chicken soup, you would think I planned to feed the villagers… and, in fact, sometimes I do 🙂 But here is my philosophy… it really doesn’t take that much more time to makeRead More →

The other day I shared our latest gnomes… the Old World Wooden Gnomes. In the past we’ve made Peg Gnomes, Knit Gnomes, Sewn Baby Gnome Dolls, and Michelle even designed Gnome Pillow Panels that you can buy from Spoonflower to sew and stuff. So, it only seems natural that we would eventually have gotten around to making wooden gnomes 🙂 NOTE: ForRead More →

Few things can make a gnome get a rumbly in his tumbly faster than the smell of fresh mushrooms sauteing in a frying pan. Axle thinks Britta should add mushrooms to just about everything she makes. Because Britta shares his love for mushrooms, she’s willing to cook them as long as heRead More →

I know Britta must be thinking… why would a perfectly lovely lady (me) knowingly encourage leprechauns to run amuck in the Thicket? Well…. because at heart, I think we all have a little leprechaun in us, especially at this time of year! So, I would like to introduce you to our littleRead More →

Even pegs bought from the same company can be slightly different. I highly suggest you make a copy of the pattern, cut it out of paper, andRead More →

We have had our gnome house for almost 2 years now, and just like my own house, I am always adding a little here and there, changing this and that, and allowing our environment to reflect the seasons. When preparing our gnome house for Valentines Day, I decided we neededRead More →

What a busy time in the Thicket. Britta is bustling around readying the house for a Valentines Party she is throwing for some friends. She just finished this lovely banner with flowering vines meandering over a Valentine’s heart. Although cold weather is still evident throughout the Thicket, hearts are warm with Valentine Cheer. There isRead More →
