Gnomes in Love by Tara Reed by Riley Blake Designs
While gnomes have been gracing gardens for years, the Nordic gnomes with ample beards, round noses, and no faces have become the hot new decorating trend. Traditionally associated with Christmas, they are now making us smile all year long! (These gnomes are basically the Scandinavian version of Santa & visit the homes of children on Christmas Eve.) Gnomes have become one of my favorite art subjects when I want to do something bright and joyful. As I painted the hearts that would wrap around one gnome and be tossed in the air by another like confetti I had a big smile on my face. I'm excited to share the Gnomes in Love with you and hope they bring joy and love to all of your sewing and quilting projects!
