The sun rose at 1041am and set at 1339pm. The length of the day was 2 hours and 58 minutes. No sun today, more snow, temperature below zero. Hard walking, as there was so much snow on the walkway, hopefully by tomorrow the walkway has been cleaned. On the other hand, it was really a good workout.
Today I set a small Tonttu-workshop on my desk.
I did not have much time for these today, but I have my gear all set up and I prepared few heads.
I will show you step by step if you'd like to follow.
Wooden beads (Ø15mm/0.6")
Glue (I used Aleene's all purpose Tacky Glue),
Wooden sticks (from grocery store - they should fit into the bead's hole)
Pliers to cut the wooden sticks
Cut the wooden sticks into approx 3cm (good 1") pieces - wrap little bit of glue around the stick and attach it to the wooden bead. Let the glue dry.
Very often one sees these yarn gnomes made of yarn only, and then one would skip this part but I like them to have heads.
Tomorrow the body and then the hats.
Wool with you,
