Flower plots and gnomes

Sometimes I feel that a week without gnome creation is a week wasted. Luckily this little gnomie was a quick knit *smile*

I also knitted up a couple of cuddly, snuggly gnomes for some babes (see here).

In non-gnome knitting, I’ve finished one flower plot ready for planting (of the needle felt kind), and started another. I am knitting 12 as part of the Knitted Farm Swap hosted by Carrie of Crafty Moms Share.

And I need to find a pattern (and some time) to turn this wool into a viking hat for Husband of Mine!

As for reading, I have finished Baking Bread with Children but am still enjoying dipping in to re-read little tidbits. Newly on the bedside table are A Storm of Swords and The Natural Child, parenting from the heart (which I was lucky to win from Faerymother).

Swapping little bits of goodness

Recently I discovered a wonderful handmade swap group ~ Bits of Goodness, and I am so glad I did! 

When you join a swap, you create 5 items (plus a gift for the swap organiser) ~ and you receive 5 beautiful items in return 🙂 And wonderfully, all items are made with natural materials, and a lot of love ❤

So appropriately, my first swap was for Valentine’s. My creations were heart gnomes that were sent off with little felted hearts. 

And a few weeks later I received a lovely parcel containing…

~ made by Teah ~

Thank you lovely crafty mamas! And Bits of Goodness!!
