Do You Have Elves in Your Garden?

I finished my elf I'm going to use on another Midnight Fantasy Garden block. I chain stitched his shirt to look like a knitted sweater. His beard is made of french knots and bullions. You can't really tell but his ears, nose and hands are outlined in black metallic thread.  I think his shirt will glow in the dark. 

And, if you look around my garden you may just see a few elves hiding among the flowers.  Oh, and garden tip...fabric scraps make for good mulch. I put some of the scraps I collected all winter around the roses today. 

If you'd like to see what's blooming in the garden visit my garden blog - Down and Dirty Gardening.
