I was delighted to find out that these gnomes were on the blog and website of one of my favorite textile artists, Salley Mavor. Salley creates dimensional or relief illustrations with fabric (wool I think), and other objects, all sewn by hand. Her work is like eye candy to needleworkers and crafters, who find her work inspirational. She has illustrated many books, among them Wee Willie Winkie, Hey Diddle Diddle, Mary Had a Little Lamb, Jack and Jill and In the Heart. I have several of her children's books. I find her work very inspirational. Check out Salley's blog here to see more pictures of the gnomes and her work. You can check out her website here.
