'Project' finished!

Here you go - a picture of the 'project' I've been working on. Unfortunately my computer is balking (again) and not letting me crop pictures so....I apologize for all the 'stuff' cluttering up the surrounding area. The people this santa is going to are Toronto Maple Leaf fans; they own a boat; and have a chocolate lab. I don't think in this picture you can see the boat, but there is one behind the deer on the right side of the picture. The Maple Leaf is the tree topper and there's another on the back of his cape. Purple was also requested. Did you notice that his coat is crazy quilted? (photos are clickable). This is a closer look at the toy basket he's carrying.
I had fun making him and now it's on to making more Christmas presents!

When I read that the intended owners of this Santa owned a boat and had a chocolate lab I thought, Oh, I'd love to work in a chocolate factory !! Then I saw the chocolate labRADOR , d'oh!!! Easy mistake when your a cat person, anyway that's my excuse, LOL.

He's absolutely gorgeous, I hope they appreciate your attention to fine detail.
