Morning all. All the big cleaning jobs have been done and I only have the day to day stuff left. To celebrate I went out on a jolly with one of my friends.
We went to Ely Cathedral in Cambridgeshire to see an exhibition of ‘Cribs from around the World’.
Radio presenter Libby Purves and her family have collected crib sets from different countries and this collection is currently touring the UK to raise money for The Children’s Society.
Unfortunately the display was in quite a dark area of the cathedral, and while it was very atmospheric it wasn’t good for taking photos! So I shall only put up a few of my own but I’ll direct you to a slide show on the internet for better pictures.
Apologies for the poor quality photos, the link to the slide show is here, it shows you a crib scene which is carved onto a match – amazing!
It has made me think about making a nativity set for my home, we do have one made from polymer clay and when the children were little we used to dress up their Duplo figures with capes, crowns, shepherd’s crooks and the like to create our own, but maybe a ‘made by me’ one for next Christmas. Does anyone have any nice ideas/patterns for a homemade nativity?
Until next time,
