Louis Allen the local woodworker and wagon
maker, has made a sledge for my Father Christmas
from native Missouri cedar. It has a light satin finish,
just to bring out the beautiful grain in the wood.
It's 16 inches long & 6 inches high. It's ready
for a sack filled with toys. Perhaps a touch
of greenery and a bell or two.
His coat is finished.
Lined with a crinkly fabric.
I like the way it turned out. I love
the soft fur next to the rougher wool.
I have filled his back pack with greenery
and switches. I replaced the fake fur on the
nutcracker with rabbit fur. Time for a face,
beard, his staff and the final touches.
