It has been quite a journey on these curtains and the journey continues on even now.  My Gnomes are complete and I am happy to share the progress I have made.
Please pardon the pencil marks, I've not washed it yet and am waiting for the final work to be completed.

First is the completed new corner.... Presenting Mrs.Gnome with her Gnome home:

Closer images of her:

I really thought that a gnome with a little pointy hat needed a little pointy door. Cheesy

This is the little Gnome man that I had done a while back, he just waited and waited for his little Gnome wife to come along:

And here they are together at last.

Her design really developed as I stitched it up.  She ended up being so much more detailed than he is.  I had been contemplating if I wanted to go back a revisit his little garden spot too.  I have not yet made up my mind, my hubby thinks it's fine as is.  I learned several things as I went along on this part of the project and I hope that you all enjoy! Cheesy

These are so intricate and whimsical- I really like them.
Maybe you could put a tree or some taller fern fronds on the right of Mr. Gnome's design- I think a little height on his side might balance the two designs, although I think they are perfectly charming just as they are.  
Edited to say: Oh! And I'd love to see them hung up!

Eee!  I love these! I quite like the contrast of the simple-ness, but averaging the hwight could work too, i would also love to see these hanging!

So beautiful! One question...what is a curtain corner?

« Reply #8 on: May 26, 2009 04:35:51 PM »

Adorable. Even though I have never seen a Gnome home personally, I am positive they look exactly like this!  Grin

I must say, this is the kinda design that made me want to learn how to embroider! It looks like so much fun to make and just makes you smile when you see it.
