Had an extra credit to use after I finished a project, so . . . But, actually it makes me think of my father and me. He was a giant of a man but extremely kind, gentle, understanding and supportive. A well-respected and successful Physicist, but loved physical labor and creating things with his hands in all his free time. I would follow him around like a puppy as a boy and young man, working on houses and barns, building fences, clearing land, mowing acres and acres of land by hand and not to mention starting each day by swimming a mile. I miss him a lot.

    Your dad sounds like an amazing person to have as a father, world is lost without him. Does it mean you have to mow acres by yourself?

    OMG! Your story brings back a flood of memories - but especially the line about "mowing acres and acres of land by hand"............... My father was a small farmer and that was the way things were down when I was growing up, that and much else....

    Your design is soooo unique, as always, but this one is also sweet!

    I am humbled by your comments, thank you so much :) that design in particular is my idea of perfect way to spend rainy afternoon with the glass of wine and some simple food and watch the world go by...(ok, it might be fall, my favourite season...wine might be Chianti and dish as simple as lovely comforting Shepherd's Pie...some good company is welcomed...hahaha:) what I am trying to say, best designs are created when your soul is in them...like your little guys above:) thank you again for all the kind comments!

    Aww....beautiful memory!  When I first saw your design, I was thinking of the gnomes' episode from Dexter's Lab where they came out at night to fix things...especially shoes!

    this is the cutest design i have seen so far.. "imagination" is a powerful tool.. i would never have think of creating design like that.. a different point of view with a little fairy touch it looks amazing.. and damn the dwarfs (gnome) they do light on...nice russ kudos
