Inspired by this beautiful softie on etsy I tried my hand at it and was happy with the result. It was fiddly work, but satisfying. However, after numerous attempts at the donkey, I decided to forget it. J-jo found this St. Nicholas softie in his shoe on December 6th.
and Bear found this St. Nicholas peg doll I painted in her shoe. It matches her Santa Lucia doll in style (which will appear in the Santa Lucia post on Monday).
Next year I really hope to be able to get the Ostheimer figure for them.
