Gnomes All Over

This last week I’ve started working on making Gnomes. I would like to introduce Jerome The Gnome…..

From the top of his head and the round bottom he is 17″ tall and weighs about 5lbs. I am having fun making these. Then today finished up these 2 little guys. Chef Gnomes…

These are only 11 inches tall and less than 1lb.

I am sitting here thinking of all the types of Gnomes out there. Teachers, Gardners, Artist, Sewest, and so many more.

Now I have a serious bit of advice…beware if you are taking steroids. Drink LOTS of fluid. I usually have about 5 glasses of water, juice, and soda in a day. Thursday I had finished a series of steroids for a bronchial infection and doing fine. Suddenly not feeling good and within 30 min my blood pressure dropped from 141/84 to 70/55. By time hubby drove me to the ER it was 60/40 and I was a blob of nothing. Like a wet noodle. A few hours later and an IV lots of test, I found out I was dehydrated. A mixture of the heat and the steroids brought it on. Now I know. Drink more liquids and keep soda to 2 a day.

Now happy thoughts are I am going to make more Gnomes and will let all know how things are going.

  1. The gnomes are charming and the possibilities for variations endless.
    Sounds like you had a scary time of it recently but glad you recovered well and now you know to hydrate even more..


  2. The gnome is so sweet but looks like a lot of hard hand work. I hope you get a good price for them. Dehydration is the biggest culprit for landing people in the hospital. It’s something I have to watch as well even though I drink lots of water. Even coffee dehydrates. I don’t touch sodas anymore. They leach valuable minerals from the body. Not hydrating either. Hope you find a way to balance your body out so you can stay out of the hospital and keep making cute things.
