2012, June??? June 12, 2012 12:59
Greetings from Going Gnome! This blog entry has been waiting to be written since January, I am amazed and somewhat horrified to see it is now June! I had great intentions for posting my thoughts and reflections on 2011 and all that happened for Going Gnome. Well, now that just seems like old news.....seeing as we're already in full swing with 2012 felting and show season.
First off how about a shout out to the beloved sheep that provide us with such an amazing substance to work with!! WHoop WHoop! Here are a few I pass everyday when I drive my kids to school, lambing season on a sheep farm is a wonder to behold, with new tiny babies arriving every day:
For my second shout out I'd like to thank my Aunt, Uncle and cousins for hosting us for the weekend of the PA Fairie Festival at Spoutwood Farm! It was at this event that we debuted Going Gnome's latest new creations: DRAGONS! In a burst of creative inspiration 4 dragons were born and travelled to the Fair and were loved by many:
Give me a " Huzzah!" for 30 pounds of wool not blowing off the top of the car on the return trip from PA.
And my third and final shout out is to my sister and partner in gnome crime - Jennifer! I can't really begin to describe how amazing it is to have your work (and i use this term loosley since having as much fun as we do it can hardly be called work) be so fullfilling. We really have more fun than should be allowed, she keeps me inspired, and Going Gnome wouldn't be here without her.
Next stop: the Stockbridge Arts Festival.....Keep an eye out for more new creations, Melissa
