Gnome Retrofitting


I know. Still both busy and distracted, but able to work on these guys inbetween and on breaks. You can see I got some Mohair fleece wool. It’s like the softest thing I’ve ever touched ever. Also mustache wax for the dandy gnomes. And still learning lots, which makes me happy.

Part of my distraction is that I’m finally building out the little lean-to shed on the back of our garage to use as a wood shop. We had been using it for general storage, so my studio is now a shambles of unsorted boxes, disused music gear (his) and bins and tubs full of materials and supplies (mine) that all must find new places to be.

And this is just one side of the room. It is… unwholesome, and overwhelming, and not conducive to getting stuff done.

My granddaughter is sick today, so I’ve been sending pix of the gnomes to cheer her up.

The tall one with mo’hair is about to sit down and have a sunshine smoothie. Did you know gnomes live on smoothies?

    Mustache wax! Yay! Adorable, I love it. I hope your granddaughter feels better soon. Maybe she needs a gnome smoothie ;)

      It’s really just tacky wax, but don’t tell the dandies that :)
      Made me think of George Clooney and his attachment to Dapper Dan pomade in “Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?” And then the music… Not a bad wormhole to fall down into.
      Thanks for the well wishes. You know what plague centers toddler daycare are.
