The previous posting about a wood quilt square Gnome, mentioned a wood quilt. This is the type of a wood quilt that I was referring to. Each of the squares measures 5" x 5" x 1/2 inch thick. Once the wood squares are carved, they are assembled with a lattice and framed. Our carving group at the senior center regularly makes these for display and to raffle off for the center. I failed to get a photo of the "quilt" with the Gnome that I carved. Which is really stupid because I am the one that makes the frame and assembles the individual squares.

This weekend is a very good arts festival in town. There will be 170 "artists" set up. This is a juried event so most of the participants will have very nice items to sell. I have done this festival for four years now. This year I am introducing my Gnomes. In preparation for this festival I have been whittling my fingers to the bone. That's just a figure of speech, not to be taken literally. I have three sizes of Gnomes, 1 inch, 2 inch, and 3 inch. Along with each sale will be the instructions to place your Gnome into scenes and send in a photo. I'll preview and select photos to post on this site.
In addition to the Gnomes I'll have Noah's Arks, Santa tree ornaments, Santa pins, and whittlings for kids.
