Uncle Sam dolls



I think I have pretty much made all of the bunnies that I am going to make for this year, I try to think ahead,

so I have finished two Uncle Sam dolls. I used a Bittersweetfolkart Pattern.

I made one a black  and one white. I am quite pleased how they turned out. I used raw sheep wool

for their beards. They are grungy and prim. Pictures don't do justice, they have rusty pins and

bells going down the front of their shirts. (Beards are covering them up.)

  9. Wow! They are terrific! Just trying to catch up with everyone and I sure hope that you are still making those lovely bonnets too. I just may need one or two more! I'm thinking I need another peg rack made...better tell my hubby.

    Take care.

About Me

My photo
I have been married to my sweetheart Ronnie for 30 years.We live in the beautiful shenandoah valley of Va. We have 2 beautiful children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am a christian, and am blessed with two wonderful jobs. I am a hairdresser and also a nurse, I am proud of my nursing degree which I got at age 47. I give the Lord much praise for this. I also enjoy primitive crafts, antiquing, cooking, reading and gardening. My husband and I bought an old farmhouse in WV five years ago and it was ancient, floor rotted out in the kitchen, no bathroom, bats flying around, mice. Scary, well now five years later we have most of it completed, working now on a roof for the wrap around porch.We sand blasted some of the walls so they would be original, we also took all the old weatherboarding off of the outside of the house, planed it and put it back on some of the inside walls. We also have added a wrap around porch. Since we have remodled the old farmhouse, that is how I came up with my blog name.
