This is my favorite so far!!! This donkey is really sweet! I love the hills and the barn boards, too. I am rethinking the inside of the manger, too. It should have been darker gray. I have NO grays in my stash at all! How could that be? Need to go shopping! Betty and I got the donkey fabric in Nashville. Worked out perfect, Bets!
Bow wow! Arf, arf! Not sure why a dog is at the manager either. I need to get out my bible. This is feeling more like Noah's Ark! And I think I need to replace the one dark hairy piece under his head. I think it should be the sand and not that grey I put there. Opps!
Now this little sheep is adorable!!!! I love his black face and legs. The sand is working out pretty good, too. I'm half done but already want to get this puppy done! I'm ready for embellishments! Any suggestions for quilting from the peanut gallery??

Not happy with the fabrics for this little king. I thought I was using the circle and the dark green . Not sure how the green stripe got in there. Yeah, I could re-do it but I am not gonna do it!!! Maybe he is from a country not very stylish. . .

When I saw the kitty in the nativity scene, I thought, "Why is a cat there in the foreground instead of in the barn catching mice or in Mary's lap demanding attention?" Yeah, cats are not my favorite animals. But he turned out really cute. I might have to alter my cat thoughts. . .
This little angel is pretty cute, if I do say so myself!! Generally, when I see the others fabric choices, I am becoming dissatisfied with my choices but I LOVE the horn fabric on this piece!!!! These two pieces will get sewn together when the whole top is pieced.

Happy 4th of July!!! Got Day #4 done. Not happy at all with the fabric selections, but I am stuck with them. The grey walls are of the city and I can live with that but the city gate disappears! I'm thinking beads!!! When I get done with this puppy, everything that is not just as I want it is gonna get covered with beads and sequins. Jan is calling this Nativity "Malibu Jesus" because all my fabrics are so bright. She may be right!!!!
