First Friday Night Sew-In For 2019

 I went through my stash to find fabrics to make another Nativity wall hanging. In 1996/1997 I made about 10 of these hangings. A niece is getting married in May and has asked for one of these as a wedding gift. She said each year when she hangs it up, she will remember that it was from us. Definitely not your normal wedding gift!
 Then I picked up my stitchery while watching the Aussie boy, 
Alex Di Minaur play Rafael Nadal at the Australian Open.
 As you can see, I didn't get very far! The tennis was great to watch.
Thank you to Wendy for once again hosting us at the Friday Night Sew-In.
You can see what everyone got up to here.

What I like about your Nativity - is that it's so easy to recognize as a Nativity just by the colors and shapes. That is a very cool piece of art.
