I don't normally like garden gnomes, but I'm rather fond of this cheeky little fellow! This was the third block of Green Thumb, which is a 5-part design by the Australian designer Lynette Anderson. This has been hand embroidered using a selection of variegated Valdani threads which match the subtle tones of these pretty fabrics which are part of the Stone Garden collection, also designed by Lynette. I've used wool felt for his beard and moustache, and it's attached in place with a few colonial knots to add a bit of texture. All of these lovely fabrics, along with the set of 5 patterns, were included in a kit purchased from Cross Patch last year.
