About this design:

Each year I purchase Advent calendars that are downloaded to computers. I get them for myself and relatives. They're from Jacquie Lawson -such a fun website. The calendar has a new song and activity each day (starting today!) This year they have a parlor game puzzle with many gnomes - so cute. Mine is not as good as the ones in the calendar but I thought he was funny. Maybe if I try try again I will get better. He's a little brooch.


Old scarf, bead, leaf, hot glue

    Thanks everyone. Yes bluedog the pinecone is from my yard.
    Robin – For some reason the hat is usually pulled over the eyes.
    Kathryn – This one was made using hot glue – ouch. Maybe sewn would be better.
