work in progress...

I've finally bitten the bullet and tried my hand at a little handstitching.  And what fun it is...

 
little matroyshka dolls

You can get the gorgeous little pattern for making these dolls here on Rachel's four wise monkeys blog!  She made it herself, I only wish I could say I'd made it all up myself - it's so super awesome!

I loved practising my french knots and trying my hand at a little bit of satin stitch, now all I need to do is sew these up to make little softies to add to Bree's birthday pressie...  I am making a wee crocheted purse for these to go inside. :)  I just can't believe my baby is going to be nine!!!
