Even quicker update – Abigail has just rung to say Gnome Day has been cancelled!!** and I have just made two pairs of baggy blue trousers. Never mind it gave me something new to think about, I can now stop thinking about beards and go and clear up the mess I made sorting through appropriate ‘gnome fabric’. It’s an ill wind probably – I have realised that I have been saving crummy bits of fabric that I would never use in a month of Sundays. A lot donated, true, so it is time to donate them elsewhere I think.
** apparently they needed 570 to beat the record and only 500 showed interest. Still – 500 gnomes in one place makes the mind boggle doesn’t it? I wonder who holds the record?
