They're finished!

I think I started these in September. My friend, Liz, posted on her blog where to find the pattern and I knew I had to make them. I had my sister Jill's family's name for gift-giving this Christmas, so I decided to make two sets. I know-CRAZY! I think we started in September. My friend, Brianne, decided to make them with me. Awesome idea. We got to hang out and play and crochet (sometimes:) every Friday. I finished Jill's set right before the move and finally finished my Joseph! The kids are a bit disenchanted with them because they have seen them around for 4 months- but Jill informs me her kids love them. Yeah! Success. Hopefully the kids will be excited next year.

Those are so adorable. I love that the kids can play with them and no breakage to worry about!

Wow! Those turned out great. Nice job Melissa!
Unfortunately, my flaky friend is the one with the pattern :(, so I still only have a Mary. I need to just buy the pattern. Maybe next year.
That's is crazy you made two! I am sure that they will be greatly used throughout the years. You are amazing.

When we visited the Shakespeare family a couple of weeks ago, our boys all had a blast playing with them. Well done. You are amazingly talented, Melissa! I want a set. (Guess I better get crocheting, huh? :0)

This almost makes me want to take up crocheting, but I think I'll leave it to the more talented (and patient) people like you and just hope that you have us for Christmas soon.
