I'm so excited to finish one of the two projects that have been languishing in my home for far too long. Some time ago (actually quite a long time ago) Marie from Softearth posted about her lovely needle felted nativity set. She asked if someone wanted to swap for it. I have been on the lookout for a nativity set for many years. My parents have one that is about as old as I am, its just a little plastic figurine set, but they bring it out every Christmas and set it up. I've been looking for something similar - not in terms of plasticyness, but in terms of something that I can treasure and that the girls will remember as fondly as I remember my parents set. So when I saw Marie's beautiful set, I said I'd love it.
