The pullovers and the Nativity



Finally I can show you the work I was doing together with my friend in Matera. Here are the two pullovers we realized together, it was a long work. She is making also a dress which is not ready yet and I couldn't take a picture.
The same friend, her name is Angela, asked me to make a tatted Nativity. I took inspiration of Ineke Kuperij's Nativity and made this one. It took me about 30 hours to find the right pattern and shape

WOW, you have been busy. Both you and Angela. I love the two pullovers.

The pullovers are really elegant. Your nativity is beautiful. Where did you find the shapes to put inside?

Thank you for your comments. Marty, the shapes inside are made of the plastic covers of boxes. I cut it round, until I had the right shape and glued the long sides together. The crib is made of the same material, hold together with a spiral tatted cord and some points made with the needle.
