CANDY CANE FATHER CHRISTMAS

This Father Christmas doll is made in a more traditional style wearing a red wool coat trimmed in white. I had to do a little work on the cart. It needed stained and I added twigs for the sheep to pull the cart. I also made a leather harness for the lamb. In some ways I hope this one doesn't sell because I would love to keep this one for me.

GINGERBREAD FATHER CHRISTMAS

Wow another week has passed by, where does time go? In the past week I'm managed to finish a couple of Gingerbread Father Christmas dolls. I also have three that need their clothing. After these Father Christmas dolls are done, I'm moving on to do a few Snowmen.  I'm just not the kind of artist that likes to make dolls in a production style process and prefer one doll at a time. But Christmas is different and it's the time of year I can indulge in my "Folk Art" style.

SANTAS SHEEP

Santas workshop is in full production and that includes his sheep. I don't think I've ever made so many sheep at one time. They each receive some sort of coat. Their faces need painted, ears need attached, eyes to be stitched and rustic bells placed around their neck for added charm.

I found it hard to find little wooden pull carts for my sheep. I'm hoping one of these carts will work. I've never added a pull cart before....so I'm looking forward to see how I'll be attaching these to the sheep.

 What an exciting time it is today! Americana Father Christmas is celebrating!
I thought this Father Christmas fit the occasion. He stands 15 1/2" tall and is dressed in my favorite fabric, wool. Santa comes with a one lamb, a jointed bear, flag and a wreath accented with a star.
