Joined a sew along....

So as I am obsessed lately with the inspiration I get with blogs, I was "poking" around on the internet and I was reading one of my favorite blogs, Stardust Shoes, and saw that Joanna and her sister started up a cute advent calendar sew along.  Check out their idea and you may just want to join in. I have already done a little stocking advent calendar out of felt so I have decided to be inspired by another blogger found on their flicker page, and do an advent finger puppet calendar.  I plan on making it the nativity characters.  So far I am only in the planning stages but will keep you posted as they are being made.  I also am starting to realize just how hard it is to come up with 25 characters for the Nativity.  So far this is all I have
 Baby Jesus,
Wise Man #1
Wise Man #2
Wise Man #3
north star

As you can see I still have quite a few characters to think up of.  I think I am going to have to make a couple of the same animal so that it will all work.  I also have been toying with the idea of adding lobsters and an octopus because I absolutely LOVE the movie Love Actually.   If you have any ideas I would love to hear from you.

  1. OK so this is not the same quilt-along, swap as you are joined in that I'm in, but I figured this was as good a place as any to introduce myself to you. I'm Shelly, the light blue square of the Rainbow Quilt Sampler Swap that you are the dark blue square for. Can't wait to see what fabrics you've chosen and what progress you're making on them. You can come see what I'm working on at http://shellsspecialty.blogspot.com if you're interested.
