Baby Babushka!

I have a slight obsession with these babushka dolls at the moment, I've made them in all sorts of colours not just your traditional red and white for Christmas. I think they are going to look extra special hanging on the tree this Christmas and afterwards they'll look cute hanging over a door/drawer knob in a little girls room.
This small gathering has since tripled and I just cut out another 40 to send to Shop Handmade.
My poor sewing machine is not liking all the work it has to do.......it had a little moment when I was blanket stitching a few of these on Saturday night, I think it needs a loving service..........or a big rest!
Thanks for visiting.

Hey Brenda,
You are one talented woman! You have such great skill and attention to detail- your work is beautiful. I have one of your gorgeous little red pin cushion owls in my home. I love these new Babushka dolls, I too am obssessed by these dolls! They just remind me so much of my childhood. Do you remember the unique smell of the wood and glue they used? Hope you have had a good week.
