Whipped up these little Russian nesting dolls yesterday avo. The pattern is designed by Rachel Measham-Pywell and can be downloaded here.
They will live in front of the blue books. I need a bit more practise at sewing curves so next time it doesn't look like they have ears!
Then this morning I went in search of some nice linen to make a diary cover. Patchwork Passion in Onehunga has a great range of Japanese fabrics. At the moment, they also have a huge range of kits ... very tempting espec the big wool owl. I found some nice linen and red sashiko thread and I will stitch the girl onto the front of the diary cover. The free stitchery pattern comes from Sarah Jane Studios. Her drawings are very, very cute. Wish I could draw.
