Mendy - Tom Clark Gnome
Mendy -A Tom Clark Gnome
This Cairn Studio creation is from 1989. This retired gnome is numbered 51.
This gnome stands 3 1/2 inches tall. The base measures 1 1/2 by 1 1/14 inches.
"Mendy" likes to sit close to Thimblena, her mother, when she does the darning for the family. Thimblena is teaching her how to sew. Mendy wants to be able to help her mother with all of the mending. Mendy is sitting on a small spool and is holding a strawberry pincushion that is used to sharpen needles. Her coin is from Sweden and her hat was a special gift from her grandmother (it was actually my mother's sterling silver thimble). Mendy and her brother Bobbin always have a double birthday party because they are twins.
