The Epiphany of our Lord

January 6 marks the Feast of the Epiphany, when the child Jesus was revealed to the Magi from the east.

I made these felt Magi for my mother as part of a larger nativity scene last Christmas. I used the instructions and patterns from Salley Mavor’s marvelous Wee Felt Folk. The wool felt was either naturally dyed (here, with pokeberry) or dyed with Kool-Aid.

May you seek Him with all your heart this Epiphany, and in seeking, may you find Him.
