This is amazing. I love the eyes. I'm floored by the skill necessary to make something like this.
Wow, that's a lot of work...lots of little pieces! It looks so fun!
What a woman! She never seizes to amaze me -- nor you!
My mom has this exact same nativity, sans cow of course. My cousin designed the pattern, and she used to teach classes and sell kits to people. She doesn't have a commercially available pattern, but I told her a few weeks ago that she TOTALLY needs to make them available. Like, right now.
Oh Jessica this is a treat. I loved playing with our "Christmas Crib", a name my family called the Nativity set. My father built it and it was alway fascinating to me. I can just see children playing with this set. Your mother is gifted and I know that you must treasure it.Thank you for sharing this with us.
Holy Moly, Jessica! What a labor of love. Your mom is amazing. I miss all the time I spent with her years ago waiting during ballet classes! Tell her hello from me.
