Pumpkins and Gnome Homes

I've added two new creations to McBride House this weekend. This is my "Man in a Pumpkin Costume". I know, original name, but sometimes you just get stuck!
Because of his big round pumpkin this little guy would not stand on his own. To overcome the problem I headed down to the wood shop and cut a piece of cedar, stained it, varathaned it and fastened his little feet to it.
I love the way he is poised... Can't you just hear him say "Do you think this outfit makes me look fat?"
Next I made another set of Gnome Homes. These ones are slightly larger than the first set, but still just as insanely whimsical!
A nice bouquet of felted mushrooms!
