Happy Christmas

Photos Copyright: Maggie May

Well here we are. I managed to finish knitting Mary, Joseph and Jesus.
I will carry on knitting the rest of the Nativity figures as time allows.

Bristol seems to have a German Market visit our city every year running up to Christmas and we have some lovely stalls selling typical German foods and goods.
I spotted this Nativity on one of my visits to the shopping centre.

My daughter and grandsons managed to come over from the east coast and brave the bad weather.
I am really pleased about this and it is a relief that they got here safely.
We are having very cold weather and there is still snow on the ground and icy pavements.

Wishing you all a very Happy Christmas.

Happy Christmas to you and Harry.

Your biblical family turned out quite well, Maggie. You did a good job. Now that it's so treacherous outside, you can stay inside and knit the rest of the nativity scene. I can't wait to see it.

The other nativity scene you show is quite nice also. I love the colors of the clothes that the three kings are wearing. The whole scene is very endearing, as yours will be.

Dearest Maggie,
Just stopping by because I especially want to wish you and yours a Merry Christmas!! Had a little difficulty with my Christmas card order this year...they sent the wrong sized envelopes...and so I'm running late with my cards...but I didn't want the days to pass without sending you much love and all the best for you and yours this Christmas!! I treasure your friendship!! Love you so much, Janine XO

What a lovely knitted Nativity scene, Maggie! I've never seen one like it.

I know you were happy to have your son and your grandsons join you for Christmas. Nothing like a full house to make the place feel festive.

I'm not sure I'd love all the cooking and cleaning, though! Maybe everyone will pitch in and help!
