Little Weather House Dwarves - Kleine Wetterhauswichtel

















I love making constructions and these little weather house dwarves live in small houses that look like them. This is fixed by decree in the Fairy Reign after some of them tried to look like fairies stealing their second pair of wings (the ones for special days and celebrations). They can also rotate around if they want to. They can forebode weather very badly though because they like much more to talk about naughty fairies who lose their wands and this kind of things... I think they are really pissed off about the decree...

The piece is about 11" x 10" (27 x 25 cm). It is heavily embroidered by hand and machine and has also some hand appliqué. You can frame it or hang it as is because it has a wire hanger.

Ich liebe Konstruktionen zu machen und diese kleine Wetterhauswichtel wohnen in einem Häuschen, das wie sie aussieht. Es gibt ein Dekret im Zauberwald, das den Wichteln verbietet in einer anderen Art von Behausung zu wohnen seitdem sie versucht haben, das zweite Paar Flügel von den Feen zu stehlen (das Eine für Feste und besondere Anlässe), so dass sie wie sie aussehen. Sie können auch um ihre Achse rotieren. Was sie nicht sehr gut können ist das Wetter vorhersagen, sie mögen viel mehr über dumme Feen, die ihre Zauberstäbe verlieren und solche Sachen zu reden... Ich glaube sie sind wegen dem Dekret angefressen...

Das Stück ist ca. 27 x 25 cm. Es ist dicht bestickt mit Hand und Maschine und hat auch Handapplikationen. Man kann es einrahmen oder von seiner Drahtaufhängung aufhängen.

  1. I love this piece. So bright and cheerful.

    Brings back childhood memories of visiting my grandmother who had a weather house on the wall in her kitchen.
