Frost gnome











I needle felted this little gnome using 100% wool. I was inspired by our early morning frosts. He has a big white frosty cover of a coat on. His green body is the colour of the paddocks that are covered by the frost. I have added a pale yellow sun to his body and a pale blue swirl of the sky to his hat. Happy winter from the southern highlands nsw Australia! For lots of lovely natural crafty goodness that is often Steiner (Waldorf) influenced check out The Magic Onions

I never think of Australia as getting cold, but I know it does. Kangaroos and cold don't seem to go together. Your frost gnome is very cute!
