The Visitors...

Time to get the grog out...
Some little fat, fuzzy gentlemen have come to visit.
 Introducing, Sven, Olaf, Frode, Morten and Thorsen.
They've traveled far to hide in your pocket and bring you luck.
 Bringing with them magical dust for sprinkling on your pillow at night.
 They sneak out in the moonlight to warn the field mice of cats with bad intentions.
During the day, you'll find them chatting with the chickadees and nuthatches.
 Some may hitch a ride on the back of a squirrel to visit the owls during the hours before the dawn.
 When it's time for you to dream, they'll be there to send you off into places of wonder.
 And they'll always have time for a story with second cousin Fergus.

I just ordered some wool roving and I'm learning to do this, but I can see that I have a lot to learn and have already left blood on the fibers from the needle.
You elves are wonderful. Fergus is my favorite. I just love him. Your use of fimo clay for the pipe, boots and cutters is just amazing. I love this man. He's someone I would like to meet. Wish I could buy him but lack the funds right now.
I will keep practicing. You are my example of what I want to work toward.

I love them! What cute little men! Do you think they would find that patronizing? Anyway, they are adorable!

They spoke Christmas to me. I will act surprised (well, we won't have actually met before ) when my son presents him. Your work warms my heart.

They remind me of the Tomten!
