AlwaysInspired is such a sweetie and I know she loves gnomes. When I saw this pattern, I knew I had to stitch it up for her. I changed some of the lettering (it had two "d's" in it) and changed some of the colors. It's pretty long and took me about a week to finish it up.

It is beautiful and so perfectly stitched.  I love the fun gnome pattern (but wtf with 2 D's??).
I know she will love it and it will be a cherished piece in her home.

Oh Pam! I am so beyond excited! I'm tearing up, but considering my condition that seems to happen often!  Cheesy I can't wait to hang it up on Hamster's wall! It is something she can grow with too so it is just perfect! Kiss

kittykill this is so wonderful!!! And I think I figured out the reason for the extra d - maybe the d gnome has a stutter?  Smiley
