Last year with Christmas money I received I bought some new dies for my Accuquilt cutter.  One of them happened to be a gnome die, which I had not used yet.  I have been making my daughters and granddaughter cushion covers which they can change with the seasons.  So I decided to make new ones with the gnome die.  My one daughter came over and requested a girl gnome too, so I made some hair for the girls.  

Apparently I have been on a gnome kick, and had gotten these little cutouts of some gnomes.  Last year Joy, @ Days Filled With Joy offered a pattern for a hexagon table topper.  I used that pattern for a couple of table toppers.  

I have been collecting a lot of Pinterest ideas regarding gnomes too.  I found these gnome ornaments, and I made a bunch of these.  They are so cute.  I had some other things I had planned to make, but still waiting for supplies which haven't arrived yet.   I found this ornament at Ruffles and Rain Boots.  These are supposed to be just glue gun assembled.  Since I flunked Glue Gun 101 and burn myself  frequently, I did sew my hats, instead of gluing them, to reduce my burned fingers.    I plan to put these in my family's stockings.  

Hope you have had as much fun in this blog hop as I have.  Be sure and visit the others above, and Sarah's daily quilt along steps @ Confessions of a Fabric Addict.
