A camel and a wiseman

I got tired of the Quaker Christmas so when page 4 was finished I put it aside for a while.   Now I'm working on the next "panel" in the Heirloom Nativity Sampler.   This one is the three wisemen - but so far I only have half a man and a camel!   There's a small squirrel, a cardinal bird and several other items that might not have been in the original Biblical party.   But it is fun to stitch.
This afternoon I cut out the fabric for a summer dress and after a day off sewing today am now ready for the final spurt to the finish of this summer's sewing.   Having these days off on annual leave has been great:-)


  1. You are great at using your time so productively. It's nice to see the nativity sampler being stitched on again.

  2. Your embroidery is always impressive, but I must say I admire your skills of time management, planning and completing tasks.
    Have a great summer in your new dresses.

  3. That camel is really cute :) I'm not even thinking about summer sewing just yet!

  4. Glad that you at every making the most of your time off. I certainly did too!
    Love this Sampler and I'm sure the wise men may have brought a few animals with them!
