The winner -- of my little drawing to win the embroidery kit that will allow the winner to create something similar to this:
-- is Michele Pacey. I had two people enter and so I had C designate which person was heads, she designated Michele from Michele Made Me and Michele won the coin toss. Michelle - please email me your address and I will try to get the prize in the mail next week. I am afraid this week is out of the question as my husband and I are going on a little trip (just the two of us) to Mexico on Thursday.
Because of my mini-vacation, I will probably only post today. So before I leave, I share with you my babushkas.
These dolls are made from scraps of wool skirts, sweaters, fake fur, and flannel. I couldn't decide, if I liked them better with eyes or without. Unfortunately, I still can't decide. (I also sometimes swear they look more like Eskimos than babushkas).
I used the template for these darling embroidered and sewn babushkas from Wee Folk Art...I would like to follow her instructions sometime and include some embroidery but these were for the quick and easy thrill of saying: DONE!! I used a glue gun instead! :)
They hang above the sink in my kitchen. They look ready to help me out, don't you think?
