I've let go of the reality that I'm not going to finish all of the lessons offered in 2015, so made a video of my book this morning - as-is. I still have so many 2016 lessons to left to do, but I signed up for Life Book 2017 anyway. I'm going to try to chip away at the 2016 lessons as I go, so I'm a long ways from making last year's video flip-through.

I finished another Santa doll today. This one is a gift. I forgot to measure him before boxing him up, but I think he's 13-14 inches tall.
"Santy Claws" is made from a pattern by Hand Made With Love. I tried to find gray Kunin shaggy fur online, with no success. I did have some of the honey colored shaggy felt that I bought years ago. There were no illustrations in the instructions (which would have made the face sculpting a whole lot easier), but it's a neat pattern. I made quite a few notes in the margins for next time.

I've just finished my Patriotic Santa for next weeks' Winter Festival at the hospital (where I work). I may try to make one more Santa from a different pattern, but I may not have a chance - I'm anxiously awaiting the arrival of a new grandson. Due date is today, and I would've bet good money he'd be early, but here I wait.
