These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things...

I thought I would share a little of what's been keeping me so busy lately...
I have been so busy, busy, busy making Christmas stuff for the Twelve Days of Christmas shoppe in town.
I made these five Santa's and I just love how they turned out! I used a pattern from Angel and the Crow. They are about 3 feet long with sculpted noses and mohair beards. After I got them all done, I decided one of them was going to have a permanent home at my house, which doesn't usually happen very often. Hee Hee. I usually sell most of the things I make and this time I decided I worked so hard on them, I deserved a treat! LOL.
I also made a little herd of ten reindeer- five small and five large. I used a pattern by Handmade With Love , the pattern calls for making them with faux fur, but I made mine from warm & natural and grunged it up good. They have glass bead eyes, stick legs and twig antlers. Some have holly wreaths and some have pine wreaths around their neck with rusty bells attatched.
I made these three Santa's from an Olde Country Cupboard pattern. I gave them each a different style of eyes. They were really easy to make.
Well, that's just a few of the things I have finished. I ended up making about two dozen dolls over the past few weeks, mostly raggedies and such.There were just too many to take pics of. I still have some snowmen to get done and about 70 plus ornaments waiting to be stuffed and finished. Whew! I hope I can get it all done by Thanksgiving weekend. I have been staying up way too late after I get the kids in bed because that's the only time I can get things accomplished. Chad got a touch of the flu last week and he's finally on the mend. Luckily (knock on wood!) the rest of us have managed to stay clear of it. I am hoping to get a few things done for ebay for the Holidays, I only made one Santa last year and I want it to be different this year. Well, I ahould get back to work. There are doll parts waiting on me and they won't stuff themselves (dang it!) LOL. Later! :0)
