Maybe by the time Little Miss goes to college I will finish this felt nativity that I started in, oh, 2009. Apparently working on this project is an annual endeavor. I had high hopes of finishing it c.o.m.p.l.e.t.e.l.y. this year, but it's not looking too good. Too many projects, not enough time I'm afraid.
I would like to say that I will finish this whole thing up after the holiday . . . but that's not bloody likely either. I doubt I'll be in the mood for Christmas projects anymore. :/
Ah well. This year, we have the only wise man wise enough to figure out where the felt baby Jesus was staying:
Maybe a couple other gift-bearing friends will show up next year.
Here's the set so far:
They get played with heavily, but they're holding up ok so far. We've actually got 4 kid-friendly nativities sitting out on our bay window ledge that get played with regularly. I love having them available even if it means that I have to pick up stray shepherds and Josephs off the floor every day. In all honesty, it's funny to walk by there sometimes and see how the kids have set them up with all the marys chatting in a corner while the wise men hold a who-brought-the-bigger-gift council.
For those even later to this party than the latest addition, the pattern is by Bugga Bugs on Etsy.
Anyone else still entrenched in Christmas decor making? I'm starting to lose steam, but I WILL finish the kids' new stockings before D-Day if it kills me!
