Especially when everything is handmade in ones country, New Zealand These 7 inch gnomes are made with a NZ woven woolen blanket Stuffed with white NZ sheep's wool And Hand dyed NZ wool yarn to tie it all together No plastic fantastic here ha ha Found in my shop
Walnut crafts... Sometimes the walnut shells from my tree are a bit dirty And are not able to be cleaned to place treasures inside So I have painted these ones white Covered a small bead with wool for the hair And hot glued a ball of wool for the body Then I hot glued another walnut For the cradle cover.. A nice little Christmas morning stocking fuller treat.
I am now on my Summer vacation here in New Zealand So I have closed my Etsy shop, as international shipping can not be guaranteed to reach you for Christmas. However I can still ship nationally from my New Zealand shop

Winters sleep You are waking up You are ready to greet the
