My new writing partner....

Warning: Catholic content!
I cleared out some space on my usually cluttered writing desk and made a new home for my Infant Jesus of Prague statue. Just as a reminder of Who I am working for.

The Catholic custom is to dress the Infant of Prague in various colored vestments for the different seasons of the church year. In 1961 McCall's patterns even came out with a pattern for Infant of Prague vestments.

The white vestments in the picture I bought on eBay, which is where my statue came from. But I'm making another set following the directions here: Vestments for the Infant of Prague. This page has good instructions for making vestments,
