I love edible berries, in fact they are my favorite kind of fruit and pie to eat. In anticipation of blueberry season I went searching for the right color glass beads for a blueberry gnome. And I found them!
Peg dolls come in various sizes although the most common seems to be the 3 inch size which is third from the right in the following photo. Have you worked with all the different sizes?
I use the pegs on the right for gnomes and flower fairies; the ones on the left for angels and witches.
With his hat this gnome is 4 inches tall. The color of blueberries ranges from a greenish blue in their young stage to a very dark almost black blue when fully ripe. So I used various shades of blue for his garments and beard.
This strawberry, fresh off the vine wanted the join the fun.

They will soon be joined by other berry friends that are on studio table in progress: mistletoe berry, juniper berry, bittersweet berry and perhaps others.
