Finished another St. Nick stick. This one is made from the cut off of the closet pole from the 1st piece and is attached to piece of pine rescued from the trimmings pile at the county park. After U do a piece, at least for me, there is always something I would have done different.( added the last pic for comparison) This Santa I added the fur at the closure and bottom of the coat. Also as I had fits with the eyes chipping out on the first one so, I simplified the eyes, eliminated the brows and focused on improving his hat. We have decided to do a craft show the week end before Thanksgiving, about the time Christmas decorating is getting into full swing and I am hoping these Christmas themed sticks and Santa ornaments I've been carving do well. I may make one more and instead of the holly leaves for accent perhaps Christmas trees with red ornaments?
