Ho Ho Ho everyone! I do hope you had a splendidly jolly Christmas filled with mince pies, roast dinners, paper crowns, crackers, winter walks and brown paper packages tied up with string.

Not one to take pleasure in wrapping presents, apart from sensible shaped items such as books or boxes, I did enjoy creating other crafty festive treasures, including a nativity scene. I dug out some scrap material for the body and garments, stuffed the dolls with cotton wool and then used cream and brown* wool top for the hair.

*after a vote, which I must add didn't include the maker of these dolls, it was decided that Mary's hair was in fact ginger and not brown. I still disagree, but if Mary likes her lovely ginger locks then that is quite alright by me.
