In between running around shopping for groceries, errands for my mother, and a visit to the farmers market, I’ve been working on the last Christmas present, my nephew’s Nutcracker. From such a humble beginning, he emerged to be a handsome guy. I have to give credit to Diane Keeler, who’s class on constructing Cloche Hats I’m enrolled in and the lessons from which I applied to make my hat. This is the second class I’ve taken from Diane over at Adele’s Sciortino’s A for Artistic website. I highly recommend the experience!
So, here’s the unveiling.
This doll is another without an armature. I need to make some changes to his body, but after which and some simplifications, I’ll be producing a pattern.
I’m very pleased with the end result, even though some of the intermediate steps had scary results!
Doesn’t he look regal?
I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas! I hope that the holiday season is one full of warmth, family, love, and joy.
Peace, Joy, and Love to All on Earth!
