It's been a while since I've posted. Out of town, very busy, worn out, etc, etc , etc. Always excuses. The flower girls are currently on vacation, so it's very quiet around here. Sometime last year I retrieved the pictured gnome from the flower girls trash. Its left leg was broken off, and their mom could not keep the glue holding it together when she tried to repair it. I took it on the sly. Well I just ran across it. I carved a long piece of wood to fit into the body and the leg. Kinda like an internal splint. Next I glued the whole thing up and it's holding very well. What I plan to do is place the repaired gnome back in their flower garden, and wait to see what happens. This was the girls favorite gnome. The younger sister even slept with it on occasion. They named him Mordecai.
