Oh Christmas tree, Oh christmas tree... 2nd Advent

Thomas and I sewed up some Xmas tree decorations. We also added a fimo bead [made earlier in the year by him] to his green and blue sock. Thomas filled them with nuts.

I got an Advent gift! [how cool is that] Thank-you Seuz, it is so lovely and I feel to spoilt, when I opened the box I was really surprised that you would put so much effort into Knitting a gift for me. The sheep is also so cute and loaded with character. Gnomey still needs a name, any ideas?

[if you want to check out her other knitting, here is the addy . She has been knitting to open a on line store.]

We lit the two candles and enjoyed our little family.

mmm beeswax candles...

Hi carle

Thank you for posting your gnome. I am knitting many to add to my shop. I just love gnomes. Have you read "the wonderful adventures of Nils" It is lovely. The boys would love it. It was one of my christmas holiday books I brought to read to the children. Happy gnome naming...
