Matryoshka

For the same friend I made the potholders in my last post for, I also embroidered this little Matryoshka.


Glad to say my friend loved both, potholders as well as Matryoshka!

I changed the pattern a little bit, but the original pattern of the Matryoska I found at Oksana Plus Hobbies

  4. You definitely treat your friends very nicely. I have lots of them, but they never make me anything. That is okay, being a true fiend is what really matters.

  6. I love crafts also. My only daughter is a Liz. So she always had her brothers to compete against but thank goodness she turned out to be a real Giry, girly and to this day is a real
    fashion lady and pretty. Instead of a Tom Boy. Ha,ha.

    I enjoyed your blog.

    I will be back.
