We collected many of these Moreton Bay Chestnut seed pods recently, from a friend's garden here in Eumundi. I thought, with the single hole, they would make wonderful cradles. Mr Turtle did too.
Today I impulsively decided to needle felt a baby Jesus, for our Christmas table. And use one of these as cradles.
My boys decided to join in as well.
I went ahead and completed the family.
I have only just seen Joseph's smile, while putting up these photos.
And look at them here. I can see such detail in the baby's face. And everyone seems to have their face tilted upwards, toward the camera.
Can you see it too?
