Felt nativity set

Yes, I am posting about nativity sets when Christmas is definitely more than over because, well, life. I won't tell you how long it took to make this felt nativity set with a pattern I got off Etsy because I'm embarrassed. Okay, a year. And it was only done in time by Christmas Eve because my mom was visiting and sewed it all together.

At first I thought NEVER AGAIN WILL I GET MYSELF INTO ANOTHER MEANINGLESS CRAFT THAT TAKES FOREVER AND STRESSES ME OUT WHEN I CAN JUST BUY IT. But then I looked up Christmas stockings on Ebay and just couldn't do it. I couldn't buy them. They were all ugly and impersonal. So I'll be trying to knit stockings for next Christmas throughout this year. What's wrong with me?

And now I appreciate the time and stress spent on this felt nativity set. It will (hopefully) be used every year and by more than one child. That's what I love about celebrating the liturgical year, you can repeat things from year to year. It's a lot of work at first but then gets easier. Celebrating the liturgical year was one of the priorities I set for us at the beginning of the school year.
