Our neighbor girl who has been babysitting for us practically since Cedi (our oldest) was born graduated from High School this year. She’s a wonderful kid and I know she has big things in her future. We’re super excited for her but we are all going to miss her terribly! She loves gnomes and she’s really arty so I knew she’d appreciate a little cross stitched piece. I found this fun gnome kit and got to work whenever I had a minute.
I think it’s fun to see how these little cross stitching projects progress. When you just add a few more crosses or colors the project changes so much!
Getting close with this one!
And the main gnome is done. Just wait until you see what a difference the black outline makes!
And here’s the little guy all outlined!
He wasn’t quite finished until I added a few strands of grass to the background. It’s all about the details!
I just covered a mini little canvas that came with an easel for the final display. I love this little guy! It’s fun to take a step away from quilting for a bit and just do something that’s 100% for fun!
