The little gnome, tired from a days work in his homestead garden, rests beneath the apple tree to the lullaby of a babbling brook...
He's just a little forest gnome,
the Olympic Mountain foothills are his home,
and he dreams and dreams under the apple tree
of all tomorrows adventures that will be.
I recently made this custom order for a friend to send as a gift to a family who moved away from their little Olympic Peninsula homestead to be near family in a far away land. They were missing the Pacific Northwest and dreaming of returning one day. Having grown up in the foothills of the Olympic Mountains, and having that landscape infused into my being, I was happy to make this needlefelted wool wall hanging to remind them of that rugged, beautiful place. May their dreams of returning come true!
