Showing Off



Just a little bit!
I finished this big guy last night and I was so happy with him I just had to show you.

He is a Tennessee Ridge pattern but I had to make him my own. I wanted him to hold something, but I couldn't decide what. Mary-Kate suggested a bag ....so this is what I came up with.
I also felted his hair and beard with wool....I really love it.

This is Colonial Clara and her baby....

I love to just cut fabric and see what comes out......so she is a true one of a kind....
I just added them both to my etsy shop .....so check them out if you like!

I need to stop messing around with dolls and climb in the attic....put up my Fall containers and drag down my Christmas. I am gonna have a very simple, natural look this year. We have so much going on here....we will not be doing any entertaining....in fact we plan to start tearing that wall on real soon (say a little prayer...we have never done anything like this)!
Enjoy the rest of your holiday weekend!

  1. Oh my gosh, they are both just wonderful. I think the bag was a great idea on the Santa and looks just perfect!

  4. Gorgeous! Don't you just love her patterns? I made the Primitive Grungy Frosty Snowman Hat Lamp which is on my Etsy site as well! They are too cute!

    I love the holidays but I am so busy myself that the thought of dragging everything out is daunting. I never even decorated for Autumn this year. Ugh!!! My favorite season gone :( Oh well, there's always next year!

  5. I have to tell you...I'd be "showing off" (which you are NOT) if I had such great dolls finished too! Ü Love the Santa and the prairie doll. I can't get my Christmas decorations out either..it all seems much too fast. I barely packed up fall. Can't understand why time seems to be flying by faster and faster.............
