Oh, mushroom farmer gnome, how I love you! These wreaths were my non-knitting Christmas craft of the year, and since they’ve been received by friends already I can show them, because there have got to be more gnome/toadstool freaks out there who’ll love this.
And his closeup:
The gnomes and trees are from A. Bell Emporium. Amanda’s AWESOME.
Vintage spun cotton mushrooms from D. BlÃ¼mchen & Company. This website has so much good stuff, I freak out a little.
I got my wreaths from Save-On-Crafts.com, but I suspect big craft stores would have them.
The snow is wool, of course!
Somehow, between finishing up the fiber club and Christmas, I have to make my usual hot chocolate mix (This is a new recipe, so no word on how good it is. I did make the vanilla sugar and we can’t stop putting it in our coffee, so I’ll have to make more. UPDATE: The hot chocolate is excellent- kind of Swiss Miss-y in a happy, cheesy way, but with the yummy vanilla flavor added.), marshmallows, and toffee, plus Parmesan Black Pepper biscotti. I’m totally making recipes I haven’t tried before to give away to people I like. I’m brave bonkers like that. It’s comforting to look back and realize I was this mental last year, as well, because I survived!
Fiber Club People:
Your packages will ship right after Christmas.
