Have I shown this before?

This is the Santa I made last year. Or I should say "am still making" because he still needs a bit of work. This was for a VCD challenge and in my web research, I stumbled across the work of Conni Jenkins here. I love the look of her sweet Santy Clauses and decided to try that direction. I don't have a lot of experience with needlesculpting, but this turned out really well. He just needs a better coat and a stand and then he'll be something that I want to put out on display. I remember now that I was trying to make something to keep. Something that my kids could argue over after my death. As it is now, it is just another unfinished project!

  1. Hi Bettsi,

    He’s wonderful! The kids will definitely be fighting over him… I think maybe you should just go ahead and make one for each of them!


  2. I'm sure I've seen that charming, friendly face before! How big is he? "Another unfinished project" -- boy, can I ever relate to that! Josephine


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment!
