Happy Christmas Everyone.

Photo Copyright: Maggie May

Last year, Denise from Mrs Nesbitt's Space, sent me the pattern for this Nativity and because it was nearly Christmas when I received it, I only managed to finish Mary, Joseph and Jesus. I went on knitting the rest of the figures though and then just put all the pieces in a bag and forgot about them because Spring had sprung. As this Christmas approached, I decided to get out the pieces again and try to put them together. So here they are. I haven't quite finished the kings though. There always seems so many more important things to do. Maybe they will be finished in time for Epiphany in the New Year. Isn't that the time when the kings are noted for their arrival?

Although I will try and visit other people's blogs, I am going to be really busy with last minute Christmas rush and my daughter and grandsons' visit and babysitting the girls, so I might not get another post out before Christmas. So I want to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Happy and Blessed Christmas.

That nativity set is really cute! And, if I get some pictures come Saturday afternoon of the children's program at our church -prior to the afternoon candlelight service -you'll be amazed to see the similarity in the kids in that program to your nativity set! (Well, except maybe for the lambs!) Hope your plans for the holiday all go forward in a smooth manner for you and that you and yours have a beautiful and blessed Christmas and a very Happy New Year too! Peace and love to you.

You're so talented, Maggie! Your nativity scene is so sweet, and I'm impressed by all the detail. I'm still working on a simple scarf I started this past summer:)

Merry Christmas to you, too, Maggie.

I love your Nativity! You wrote about it last year, and I liked the idea so much that I asked for, and received, the pattern. I have mine finished and set up, but haven't taken any pictures. It was fun to do.

How marvellous Maggie. I did one very similar to yours a few years ago and then gave it to my daughter who refers to it as "the knitivity". I have another knitted but not made up so should make that a project for 2012! I wish you and your family a wonderful Christmas and a happy and healthy new year. A x

Loved the kitted nativity - reminds me of the knitted toys my great aunt used to make to ease her arthritis.

Hope you had a wonderful family Christmas and all the best for the New Year!
