Advent 2014 is a memory and we are firmly into the Twelve Days of Christmas! I thought I would share a photo of the nativity and how it has progressed.
The lighting isn't the best -- you can see it better in the header. I am so glad to share that the shepherd managed to make it even though he was a bit late. He had a bit of a bounce on the floor resulting in him getting bruised and battered -- smashed to smithereens, actually -- but my DH was determined that he would see Christmas so he painstakingly glued him back together with fingernail polish and there he stands -- a little worse for the wear but he is there. A replacement is in the mail but I have a feeling this won't be this little guy's last Christmas with us.
Tomorrow we will celebrate the baptism of our newest granddaughter, Emily Therese. I won't be posting photos of the child as per her parents request but I will post photos of my gift to her. I made her a baby quilt as I have all the babies. I made it in the form of a "wrapping paper" quilt which is really just a striped quilt. This is the second I have made in this style and I have to say it works better with bright colors and bold prints but I do really like the little bunnies.

My husband is gifting the sweet babe a wall cross that he made. He did a wonderful job -- I love the pattern.
Sorry for the flash -- seems it reflected off the black background which is our tv cabinet.
So, tomorrow we will celebrate the baby, the baptism and Christmas all in a day. It will be tiring but it will be good.
