Busy, busy.......

The Christmas Faire at our local Waldorf Schoool is next Saturday. Eeek! I have signed up as a guest vendor and am frantically trying to get enough stuff made to make it worth my while to be there from 10 - 3:30 and miss out on all the fun the rest of the family will have. Also, although we are homeschooling the girls, we participate in the Parent and Tot classes offered through the school (at our house) and as participants in that program we are asked to contribute 24 items for the children's store.
The gnomes are my contribution. They are tiny. The little hand reaching out into the sea of gnomes in the bottom left of the last picture is 18 month old Tigerlily's hand. That should give you an idea of the size. As a child I remember that all the toys I truly loved were tiny, the tinier the better. So whenever I make toys I am always drawn to making the smallest things possible.
Once I've made everything I plan to take some pictures and post them. Wish me luck!

I think I could have posted the exact same photo as I am working on gnomes for our winter fair. Ours have a tiny difference--I've stuck little feathers out of the hats for the dark green and brown ones and sewn little bells on the hats of the red ones--of course now they aren't toddler-friendly. I look forward to photos of your fair.

wishing you a wonderful fair! The gnomes are wonderful. I think it's neat how some children are so drawn to the small things--my sister was just like you in that way. She loves the littles!

Those gnomes are precious. I have always loved tiny things too. I am sure they will sell well.
