An angel...

The Angel, Gloria, for the nativity set.
All the human figures for this set will be bottle-covers.
Height will depend on the chosen bottle.
Gloria is about15 inches.

Holy Family finished

Well, I have changed their hair and worked on Joseph's features. Picture at left: beard lightened to brown as I 'tweaked' the image, to see the details in the shadows. It's really black, as in the other photo. And Mary's is brown, not auburn.

Nativity figure no. 2

Joseph, like Mary, is still a work in process, and will probably have several changes before I declare him 'finished'. I'm not sure how Mary will be presented but I think I prefer her seated. Or perhaps reclining, but definitely holding her baby. And I like Joseph being close.

Work in progress....

Here, at last, is a peek at my first figure for the Cloth Doll Artistry Nativity challenge. Mary is definitely a work in progress, at this point, and I've not made the infant, yet, but I am getting a good start on the set. My goal is to develope patterns as I go, and eventually offer the entire set as a printed pattern. Well, of course the first goal is to get at least the major players finished by Christmas. Hehehe. The set will have 11 or 12 figures, including 2 or 3 animals.  The 'people' will be  15-17 inches tall, and will have a surprise feature, which I will reveal a little later. Curious? I will post more pictures at least weekly.
