My Halloween matryoshkas popped up here the other day. And thank you to all of you who told me that I was featured on Decor8. The other recent place to feature my matryoshkas was an Australian site: Living Creatively. Wow, they do such wonderful articles about talented artists and I am pinching myself that I should be so fortunate to be featured there.
I just put these in my shop the other day and everyone but Jasmine at the very front of the line have disappeared from my shop already!
I guess I am a bit behind because this was last week's challenge item: Two babies in a basket in need of a good home.
The theme for the European Street Team's challenge last week was "cute". They each have their own hand quilted blanket. Inside the 100% wool felt basket I have put a round mattress that fits it snuggly. The babies too are made of a lighter colored 100% wool felt and completely hand stitched.
It was just like when i was a little kid and made a doll house for my younger cousin. I had so much fun planning and sewing all the little details. The fabrics are Japanese cottons. Jan might recognize the very sweet print with the berries on it? She gave it to me in our swap. I am so happy that I am getting around to using the fabrics in my stash and especially those given by friends.
