The set in this plastic box is one I made for a friend who saw a set I had made and really liked it. I made the box to fit the set so she would have a place to store them. The sheep and baby basket are sitting on a bent piece of plastic with a hole cut into it to hold them up. She was delighted with it!
I created these two donkeys over two days tofinish off my two Nativity sets below. I have someone who wants both--one for her and one for her daughter. Since taking this photo, I took my Copic markers and di some shading around the nose, eyes, and ears.
This is Henry and Mila created for Henry for his 2nd birthday in March. He loved it! His older sister who will turn 5 this year already has her order in for hers with a 5 on the shirt.

first set are made from natural wood golf tees.
The eyes are small headed black pins and the
head covering and blanket are woven fabric
frayed at the edges.
The very first ones were in December 2007, were given to Collette, Ann, Charla, Diane, Karey, LeNea, Birgid, Linda, Carol, Amber, Mary Jane, Maxine, and Laurie.
We did this when the grandkids were tiny—-15 or so years ago.
I wanted to pack them in a see through box and we had these on hand so... Here is one set. The other one is very similar.
Here are the most recent 20 of the 902 pincushions I needle felted from wool roving. They are sculpted with a special barbed needle from ...
