I came across this old line drawing online one day, randomly during an image search. She was so adorable that I just had to stitch her. Her skin is a bit peachier than it appears in the photo. It's pretty much all backstitch and satin stitch. She's in a 7" hoop.  Cheesy

Looking for a vintage magazine (1974 - 1978) that has a fabric nativity set w/ people and animals. An example: http://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=440861&ppuser=143144.
