preparing for an espirational time

2 crochet amigurumi donkeys standing beside a manger.

Around this time of year over 2000 years ago, the stage of life was getting set to welcome the birth of the most loved and talked about baby ever born.  A tiny baby who grew up to give the world two things it needed very much. Love and hope. In the spirit of giving, I give you these two sweet donkeys.  The pattern is available here, on my free pattern page and of course at my ravelry store.

I am guest blogging at today and I invite you to take a peek at this site.   Espirational is about “ the things we do to stay positive and remember who we are.”  I get sidetracked easily and I find a visit to Espirational gets me focused and back where I want to be.

  1. Thank you for your guest blog post on We appreciate your time on our blogs; both reading and writing.


  2. Your donkeys are beautiful, if only I could crochet! How did you get it to snow? It looks fabulous ( or perhaps it was the hail we had in Melbourne yesterday).


    1. Thank you! I hadn’t named them yet and I am keeping these two as I plan to slowly get a whole nativity set together eventually. I will call the small one Damon! 🙂


  3. Sharon, your festive holiday crocheted donkeys are amazing! I just love the color yarns you chose and the way you’ve “staged” their photo in the manger! Beautiful work, as always 🙂


  4. The donkeys are awesome… Im in love with them (but not showing my children until I have actually made them because I couldn’t stand the whining about another project just now). I saw somewhere recently a free Mary Joesph and Jesus (crochet pattern) you could make a whole nativity! xx


    1. HeeHee! I think I just learnt a valuable lesson from you! (about showing things to children!) Finished my first mousie! Gosh they are fab! and hardly any sewing! I think I will work on a nativity (for next year) 🙂


  5. OMP (oh my pig). This is the best! Just when I think you can’t possibly top yourself – you DO! Way to go Auntie Sharon! XOXO – Bacon


  6. “ the things we do to stay positive and remember who we are.” – sounds like good muti to me! Life too hectic right now, I’m in way over my head 😦 And as for getting distracted, well, all I can say is SQUIRREL .


  7. wow ! these donkeys have some character 🙂 thanks for the pattern. Had a peek at just now. It is such a ‘feel good’ site, I might peep in whenever I need to recharge myself ! How about doing a guest post for me too please 🙂 I mean it seriously. The red carpet awaits your arrival 🙂


    1. Thank you so much for your kind words! I am madly busy at the moment so I can’t do a guest post BUT I would be really pleased if you would care to re-blog any of my pages.
      I am enjoying your recent squirrely amigurumis! 🙂


      1. Anytime you are free and ready, I would be delighted to have you in my space. I have not so far reblogged any, but will sure explore that 🙂 I am keen to try some of your patterns and will post them when ready 🙂 Happy En and Ben are keeping you smiling !
