I had a happy afternoon yesterday choosing which of the decorations we are going to use this year. With no fireplace or staircase to decorate we don't need everything. One of the must haves was the stoneware nativity figures that I made when I was pregnant with Tall Girl at the pottery class I used to go to.
I loved the process of simplifying the shapes so they would be robust. Some of the scales are a bit dodgy - like the amazing giant sheep!
Choosing the glaze colours was fun. Before they are fired the colours are nothing like how they will finally turn out and you just have to trust that it will be ok.
When Tall girl was wee she dropped Mary and her head broke off. I was pretty upset but some clever gluing and you can't tell.
What's your favourite Christmas make?
