I recently said that I might end this series with an even dozen. I've reached that number plus one. The plus one is Mrs. Claus. I have sculpted one dozen Santas in this style, including the one that is the prize in the giveaway.
That last few have even been similarly posed. There's only so much you can do with Santa and that is the reason I'm going to take a break for awhile. It's not going to be permanent, but just a break or time out. I'm going to try my hand at sculpting other figures. I've got something else in the works even now. My daughter saw the other project yesterday and said, "I hope this isn't Santa".
Here we have number twelve in the series:
If you'll remember in an earlier post I had two pups in Santa's bag and I said my feline nephews may feel slighted. To make it up to them, I've put two kittens in Santa's pocket. They're just kittens so they're napping.
Here's a better look at the kittens and a profile view of Santa and the bag. I'm using the red and green color combo again but letting green have the bigger role.
See, I am in a rut. I even have a bunny in the bag. He's a different color and you can see his buck teeth if you look closely, but it's still a bunny. For those who think that's another Annie, you would be wrong. This raggedy doll is named Fannie Freckles. She's the first doll I ever had. My parents told me that I used to climb out of my crib by using her as a step stool. I'm not sure if Fannie Freckles was just the name my parents gave her or if she came with the name.
Here are the last two Santas standing side by side so you can compare the contents of the bags.
Note another scarf offering from Mrs. Claus. This one is knitted from yarns matching the hat and sweater.
Don't forget that there are two weeks left to enter the contest/giveaway. For clues to what Santa has in the bag, go to the contest/giveaway page and then come back here to enter your guess.
As always, thank you for stopping by.
