I've been thinking about upgrading this chap for a year or two. I HATE cutting and tying ends so have spent a while sorting him out so I've got rid of one lot of 'ends'. Another improvement is a better hat and a new style of walking stick too. Oh, he's also a bit longer too. The original was a bit short and fat and I wasn't too happy about that. Obviously either of them (old and 'improved') can be made longer anyway.
Here he is in all his 'new' glory with updated hat, walking stick, body length and scarf.
