Some Santas Residing with my Sister...

Inspired by my friend, Allie's, post about the quilts she has given her sister over the years, here are a few Santa dolls I’ve made for my sister from Christmases past. The one in the wagon is my very first Santa (from a pattern in Santa Claus magazine in the 90s). These pictures were published, along with my Shanty Claus pattern, a few years ago in Australian Homespun magazine.

A Little Santa...

I just finished another small Santa based on a design in Art Doll Quarterly by Dianne Rawls Davis (Nov. Dec. Jan 2010). I had made one in July and it was so much fun, I had to try another! I used a small remnant of heavily textured upholstery fabric and trims that I had on hand.

It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas!

Here's Gulli and his little friend putting up the Christmas decorations! Dolls and outfits are by Goodreau.

Emu on the Loose in Southern NJ!

DH took this shot with his cell phone yesterday of an escaped emu on the side of the road near our house!
