2020 Row Along-Gnome in My Garden

Garden Party is the perfect theme for the row along this year, 
as most of us couldn't do much of anything,
 but stay at home and enjoy our gardens. 

Strangely enough, my garden was visited by weird little men!
Mischievous little Gnomes.

If your a Harry Potter fan, 
you know Gnomes were pests that lived in the gardens of 
witches and wizards. (Guess that explains a lot around here) LOL!!
They were tolerated, and in a less extreme measure,
 they were tossed out into the gardens.
What better way to add to a garden.
"Gnome in my Garden"
This 12" X 30" bundle of mischief will watch over all the rows in your garden.
As an added bonus, he is fully customize-able too. 
Birds and butterflies, lots of choices of flowers and leaves,
 to decorate your birdhouse stake.
And even a cute little lady bug, too.

This block was done in Northcott Stonehenge fabrics.
The background is Blue 39304-46
The Gnome body is Red 39300-28
A great flesh tone is 9020-210
And his stately cream colored beard is 3937-192
(Additionally many assorted batik scraps were used)

You can download the pattern

Below is my trial version, done with my hand dye fabric in the background,
and array of different flowers.
I hope you enjoy and I'm looking forward to seeing your Garden Gnomes, soon.

We have a great give away today, thanks to...

One last little note...
My humble apologies, as my block was not quilted. 
Here on the home front, my garden is growing.
This little "Sweet Pea" has been taking up much of my time lately,
and I wouldn't have it any other way.
You know in the MooseStash, everyone has their own moose.
We start em young around here!

Hello Fall Blog Hop

Right back at ya...
Hello Carla, and all my blogging friends!
You know it's going to be a fun time, when Carla hosts a hop.
"Hello Fall", is no exception.
The temperatures are starting to drop.
...we even had show here a couple of weeks ago which was just crazy!

But, it got me into that fall mood. You know, the one when we want to start to hunker down and become domestic!  My quilt projects come out and my oven gets busy with baking.
All the things that seems to get pushed aside, in the summer hustle and bustle.

For me, this years seems to be all about "words". 
Words and Inspirations to keep me sane, while going thru
 this Covid Quarantine time. 
Missing family and friends. Reminiscing about the good old days.
You know, like before March. 

So, without further ado...
Laughter, Imagination and Dreams
is my addition for the Fall Blog Hop.

I love searching online for words of wisdom.
The process of turning them into quilts is made so easy with the help of

  HeatNBond®EZ Print Lite. No more tracing.
Just run it through your printer for an easy way to create all your fusible applique needs.

With the dog days of summer coming to and end, 
and the excitement of putting the lawn mower away...
I'm Laughing, Imagining, and Dreaming!

My fellow bloggers have so many projects, you are going to "fall" in love with.
Make sure you visit them all.
