Nativity Advent Calendar


Advent Nativity Calendar. Need to add Velcro to the back of people and animals and sew down the numbers. Add 4 loops at top for hanger and the backing it will be completed.


Tatted Ghosts for a lady in Tx. Still need one more to tat. Pattern is from Mark Myers and tatted in size 20.
Crazy quilt block for a quilt. The purple by the toadstools is a tatted bunny. I like to add color felt behind my tatting as it defines the character. Humming bird and lady bugs are silk ribbon. The butterfly near the flower is a pattern from Helen Steven's book. The thread is rayon using 1 strand long and short stitch.

 
The hook rug is almost completed. I have a few more flower and the rest is background. I do not have a rug cutter so all strips are cut with a rotary cutter about 1/8 wide. A lady gave me a bag full of Pendleton Wool scraps today. Nice and clean.
 
 The boys going down to an elderly couple in their 80's and mow the knee deep lawn. Rain every day and it looks like a lush valley here in NM!

Very nice nativity calendar. Is it made of wool?

Thanks Ladies for visiting me and leaving a nice comment. The base is craft felt and then I build on top with different types of fabrics including wool. Baby Jesus has a wool blanket, the robes have strips of wool fabric and The hair/beards are from wool roving ( I spin and have lots of wool on hand). Lots of beads and braids.

Your Advent calendar is great! I love all of your other stitching too. Someday I will hook a rug. That is one of the crafts I really want to learn. So pretty.

Your advent calendar is fantastic! I LOVE your tatted ghosts and the CQ is lovely. How wonderful of the boys to go mow the neighbor's grass.

Your advent calendar is looking great! And those tatted ghosts are so cute.

I love all details you've added to your crazy quilt block... especially the ladybugs.
