Last night marked the completion of another little gnome doll. Her name is Hazel Hornbeam, and she is the daughter of Posey Hornbeam (one of the other gnomes that I've made). She stands 5-3/4 inches tall (including her hat) and her weight is yet to be determined as I forgot to weigh her last night. She took about twenty-eight hours to complete and is 100% felted wool made with size 38, 40 and 42 needles.
This makes five gnomes for the diorama that are finished! Only thirteen more to go, right?! I took them all out this morning for a group photo, just to see what a bunch of them looked like together. I'll be starting another "adult-sized" doll this afternoon, but I haven't decided for sure which one it will be.
Hazel and her family will be in the Winter section of the diorama, so she has boots, a coat and a fur hat on to keep her warm! She will also be holding something, but we haven't decided just what it will be yet, so her hands are free right now.
