Tentatively name Lisette, this is my most recent doll from my new design. She is made from Windsor Ponte fabric, which I believe is no longer made. There were pros and cons with this fabric. Her hair is Tibetan lamb on the hide. I still need to decide on a final hair-do, and possibly a hat - but otherwise she's done!
Yesterday I painted her wood base. I was trying for a cobblestone sort of effect.

I'm starting to feel better and am nearing the end of my Covid isolation. Since I still had Santa-related fabrics out, I decided to finally write the pattern/instructions for the Santa head ornament (originally designed in 2004). I'd started writing out the instructions many years ago, but had finalized until today. This meant I had to sew another ornament.
To distinguish this pattern from my "Sleepytime Santa" pattern (which was an off-shoot from this original design), I'm naming this one "It's a Wrap" - meaning Santa is done for the year, and is ready for a good long rest!

Despite best efforts to avoid it, Covid caught up with me.

Even with best tools, stuffing doll parts takes a toll on your joints!

The holiday fair was successful, but time is running short to prepare for the festivities.
