Well at last I can relax: Santa is done! There are one or two details I am not content with but they can wait until after Christmas.
I am generally thrilled with the way this has turned out. As this is my own interpretation of Santa I would be happy to help anyone else who is interested in making something similar (next Christmas).
In the meantime I need to finish off other projects and even do some housework.
The weather is playing havoc all over the world with snow in the Northern hemisphere and rain & floods in many parts of Australia so I am hoping everyone is safe as we approach the holiday season.
