I have had some Christmas visitors: The Rudolphs.
(Or as my son said "Aren't they just your donkeys in fancy dress?") He is right in a way, as Rudolph is basically an adaptation of my Derek Donkey pattern.
The Rudolphs went down quite well at last weekend's fair, so only two remain. Some people mistook them for dogs, with very big ears, so I may try to refine the horns a bit if I try again.
But Derek has met and welcomed the new visitors, and he seems to approve.
