April was a pretty crazy month! What does May have in store for us?

First, let’s recap April. I had big news and excitement pouring out! (I tried to use a water verb… April showers? From that little verse, “April showers bring May flowers”? Is that a common and well-known phrase? Or just something my mom used to say? )

April recap:

*my One-Year Designaversary and the big giveaway and sale,
*Crochet Now magazine published my Eiffel Tower Wall Hanging pattern (issue 68),
*started my 4th free CAL (Crochet-A-Long): the MusicCAL,
*and I published a few new patterns to Etsy/Ravelry (April Gnome, Excavator 40, Flamingo 20, Tropical Tree 20, Brotzell Tiger King, & MusicCAL)

And now it’s time to bring on the May flowers with a flower-filled gnome square: May Gnome.

My eBook, A Year of Gnomes, is growing each month. This month I’ve drawn up a gnome with wild flowers in her braids, on her hat, and decorating her space. I hope you like her. ?

If you’ve previously bought the ebook on Ravelry you will see there’s an update available. I have also emailed the new pattern to all my Etsy customers.
