Nativity and Lace Mat Doily

This week I started work on the Advent Nativity. The cows, sheep (with bells) and Manger  are finished.  The angels and shepherds need some more embroidery work.  I stitch on the top layer and then cut the backing with Heat and Bond on it. This is fused to the top. Makes a nice stiff but pliable figures and will add a small circle of Velcro to back.

Sister has a birthday in 15 days so I will tat this up and have it on its way  in a week. It is The Lace Mat....Pattern by Norma Benporath and chart drawn by Jon Yusoff. The doily is tatted with size 20 Lizbeth 153 Taffy Thread. The next round I might have a plain yellow for the chain stitch.

These are projects waiting for their turn to be worked on!!  LOL
