free gnome pattern by Andrea Zuill available here
Do you ever wonder what starts a worldwide cultural trend? I do, and often - for instance, what's up with all the adorable gnomes?
Was it Amelie's charming gnome that started this whole deal? (Although I could have sworn I'd seen a travelling garden gnome before that....) Or was it the cute, perky, and occasionally annoying Travelocity gnome? I just need to know, do you guys know?
Inspiration notwithstanding, in the Flickr Embroidery pool, gnomes are here to stay:
Gnomes courtesy of merwing, my paper crane, oipom, and krakencrafts
