into new art forms! While at camp in California last week I took a gnome-making seminar (it was the City of Berkeley family camp after all) and needle felted for the first time! My gnome (lower right) came out very wizard-y looking rather than gnomish, but our teacher told us (in mystical accents) that we only help the gnomes take form, we don't create them. So, that's OK then (I guess?) My sister-in-law Christine's lovely she-gnome (upper left), Herb Woman, is much more in the traditional gnome style. Our teacher told us that our gnomes would whisper their names to us, but mine remained resolutely, if genially, silent. Any suggestions? Feel free to email me if you hear something I don't!
