We came upon a crime scene in the local University's formal Garden.


Oh! No! Gnomicide!

But wait .  .  .


Perhaps this was only attempted murder!

Oh! No! The hot glue drys too fast!





Pieces are missing. Bubble Wrap to the rescue!



Eweeee!

What's wrong with my head?!

Um. Nothing .  .  . Your brains are sho .. errr your hat is so last summer.

My what is what?

Nevermind. We'll make it work.

Huh

Crochet hook to the rescue!!

Work fast you only have one episode of a certain mouse's clubhouse to finish.




That looks just like my old hat!

No it doesn't. It has a (fast movements with hook and thread) flower. See?



All is well again. The hat was sealed with a water proofing spray. The gnome will be reinstalled in the public garden as soon as all the glue is dry.

Brilliant!  And what a fun way to demonstrate a wonderful social conscience/yarn bombing with a heart. Nice work, he's a lovely gnome and do hope he is treated more gently in the future!
