Babushkas in a basket
Here is a nice little project that kept me busy on Sunday afternoon. 3 little patchwork matryoshka dollies.
They look a bit sleepy, don't they? Lets find them somewhere nice to have a nap.
Oh, I have had such fun playing with these little lovelies and their carry cot! But they are not for me (sigh), they are a birthday present for my great neice (I know, how old does that make me sound?!), Olivia, who will be 3 in a couple of weeks time.
But it had fold out patterns... The little russian dolls don't look that sweet on the front of the book (I am a bit fussy) but when I looked inside and saw that the pattern included a bed, mattress and blankets I just couldn't resist making it!
Do you like my lovely new Greengate ironing board cover? Ooops! more stock finding it's way home with me!
