So here he is two days into the project. I spent several hours yesterday hooking this Uncle Sam Doll while Alexander played at Stomping Grounds. It was a wonderful afternoon because we met Martha Lowry and her grandson there. So while Martha worked on binding one of her pieces, I worked on Uncle Sam and the kids played.
I decided to bead the edges of his collar and coat. I wanted to bring beading into the piece, but thought I would do it with checked pants. That looked awful, so I went to the coat edges instead. I think I like it enough to leave it.
