Hello all! I've been matroyshka/nesting doll obsessed lately and I've had the urge to embroider them. This will be the first of many - I was just testing out the design...

Nice!! Are you going to be adding color to them, or keep them as redwork? They're nice as redwork! But I was just thinking how colorful the dolls are, and how pretty they'd be in full color.

Great job. It caught the look of the dolls perfectly!

I read your manifestos and strange religious tracts.  You took me to your library and kissed me in the stacks.

She's about six inches tall - but the next ones I plan to do will probably be smaller. As for the color I will probably be doing some in red and in blue - for a particular project, but it would be fun to do more colorful ones! Thanks for the nice comments everyone!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
