These little Easter Gnomes are the product of a very productive weekend on the needle felting front. They are little gnomes, dressed in their Easter bests. K’s favourite is Buttercup. She is all in yellow with her Easter bonnet and braided hair. K want’s her SO badly so I think I’ll make one just like Buttercup for K’s Easter present.
He is my favourite. I love his blues. He is called Cornflower. He reminds me of my wedding day. A Good Man and I got married at Northwell, my mom and dad’s home in South Africa. It was a beautiful place for a wedding. We had a marquee on the lawn that looked so peaceful, decorated with roses and heather. What made it all the more beautiful was that the marquee was surrounded by beds of cornflowers that my mom had so ardently planted months before. I have visions of her, dressed in her green oilskin raincoat and boots, fertilising them in the rain. They flowered just a week too soon and she tried so hard to make them last. On our wedding day, only a few beautiful blue cornflowers remained but cornflowers will always remind me of that special day and how wonderful my mom is.
