Red-Haired Lumberjack

He has a really long hat :-)

He’s got the same tattoos as the last fellow- Eagle on his chest, George Washington on his arms.

I am planning on getting these onto Etsy today, after I go pick up my vegetable box at the farmers market. I have more lumberjacks sewed up for the future but I think I will stop with these for now. With no shows scheduled and none in the foreseeable future, I want to have a good range of pieces in my online shop so I will go on to something else. That is after I get all my dahlias planted!

Lumberjack #1

Finally, slowly, I am finishing things. With no show dates and slow sales, I am not terribly motivated. Also, I am distracted by the news (a bad way) and the garden (a good way). Let’s get on to these lumberjacks.

He has a cashmere hat in case he’s cold.

Manly chest with tattoos. And an axe on his back.

I’m slowly getting back into the work groove and my studio is looking much cleaner and more organized. That is always the job and the goal for January.

He’s got a little cross-cut wooden button for his belt buckle.

I am trying to make sure I have a good range of dolls for the show in Providence so I am all over the place! A reminder- my etsy shop will be closed for dolls (but not patterns) while I am doing the show- so that will mean Friday through Sunday. Then on Monday I will refresh the shop.

Lumberjack in cotton

Wow, it has been a long while since I finished a doll. I have lots in motion but my goal for today was to get one finished up. And, success!

This lumberjack is made of all cotton fabrics. I know, not exactly crazy times, but the others have been made of wool or a combo of cotton and wool. Using the cotton and wool fabrics together for the tattooed lumberjacks often led to problems with very uneven fabric stretchiness, which could mean men with very odd proportions. The lumberjacks I’ve sewed up so far are looking just fine!

I hope all you friends out there are safe from all the crazy weather. Here in the Boston area we had exploding houses which still is unexplained. Very, very strange. Also, if you are looking to enjoy a crafty self-care day, check out the classes I posted- Tiny Worlds, Owls. It will be a day of handmade fun.
