Aria's latest little friends

Just a quick photo post of Aria's latest bunch of Christmas and Summer friends.


The whole crowd (animals to come hopefully - I'm finding them so difficult!)
Aria loves the crystals, shells and stones just as much as the dolls.



The Archangel Gabriel brings some heavenly news!



Three three wise men - Aria seems to play with these guys the most!


 
Mary, Joseph and the baby Jesus -  ("Bubba")



A Summer Fairie  - Christmas gift for one of Aria's little playmates.

Your figures are so beautiful and inspiring. I have not yet tried needle felting and I have been wanting to create a nativity scene forever. Right now we make very funny ones with my knitted gnomes and animals. Did you have a pattern/instruction set that you followed to make these? Would you be willing to share the link? Thanks again!

Your needlefelt work is amazing! What a special Nativity for your family. :)

Thank you all for you lovely comments! It's so encouraging to hear such positive things about a passtime which I find amazingly addictive. Goodenough Mama, I've just posted a needle felting tutorial by Kay Petal. This is how I started:) http://notesonanaria.blogspot.com/2010/01/beginning-to-needle-felt.html
