Poll


Thank you all for your encouraging comments on my last post! I am not throwing in the towel! I just felt I had to ease the pressure a little by writing down my frustration. As you see from the picture I am trying to enjoy Summer as well, I was very fortunate to pick up this Elizabeth George novel at the thrift store, exactly what I need to get my brains concentrated on something else.

I am planning to make a pattern booklet to sell in time for Christmas and I was wondering if you would like to help me choose which design to write down and send to the printers? The alternatives are the fairy-angel (or maybe this) or the tomte/gnome. The houses have proved to be very easy to copy without a pattern so I'll skip them, I think...? As soon as I get myself a scanner I plan to offer a free embroidery pattern for you here on the blog, I don't dare to say how long it will take, but stay tuned!

Oh the tomte - partly because I am obsessed with them, but also because they are so so 'you'.

They will all do great! I love the fairy-angel especially!

You’re right about the houses...

Maggie said...

The gnome. I love the gnome.

the gnomes are darling! you are right about the houses, but at the same time, i'm seeing them pop up here and there by other people. maybe doing the houses would help put your name to them?

The tomte... I love them!

I pick the gnomes!

I just read a book to my youngest last night about a tomte so I have to go with them as well. I love Elizabeth George, thanks for the reminder I think I'll take her with me when we leave for the beach!

Lina said...

I'll buck the trend and say the angels (but your houses are my faves!).

Anina said...

Gnomes, definitely! The fairy angel is beautiful too, but the gnomes are different.

I can't see the fairy angel, even if I'm logged in to Flickr. Apparently the photo is private :)

I love the tomte!

Pina said...

I would choose the tomte. They are so lovely!

Lesley said...

I was going to say 'fairy angel please' and then I saw the tomte and now I can't choose!!!

I agree with painted fish studio about the houses too!

There's a prize for you in my blog!

I like the "maybe this" angel ornament, but I'm really feeling the pressure to vote with the rest of the crowd for the gnome.

RunAliceRun said...

I was so inspired by your photo that I had to add one of my own to my own blog. I included yours as well for a comparison of summer weather from around the world!

Jennifer Yellow-Hat said...

I love the gnome. Please please make a pattern for the gnome :)

Leanne Graeff said...

I think the fairy angel is my favorite - but the gnome is very sweet too.

Meridian Ariel said...

the tomte I think... though I love them all, the houses are a special favorite, but I think the gnome has the most character, the cheekiest one, and something a little bit diffrent.

although I keep looking at the houses and thinking what a nice chritmas/winter village you could make out of them.
