haha. SuzukiBeane33, I'm so glad you like everything. Cheesy I literally LOLed when I saw you standing there all cheesy holding the pillow. I'm thrilled that it's a hit -- although I know it wasn't a total surprise. Wink

Thanks for all the tons of great pics!! Yours are even better than the ones I took. I think that last shot shows all the detail on the little Matrioshka applique. I got my inspiration from Unazukin dolls.

The pillow applique was inspired by a change purse on Fred Flare.com.

Here are some images of the cards I sent a_heart_apart:



They each have three sizes of the nesting dolls which were lino printed on a variety of handmade papers.
Here's the matrioshka madness  Wink on my table in progress


I also made three nesting dolls by printing the same images on vintage fabric. They had pockets so that one doll could fit kangaroo-style inside a bigger one... but I forgot to photograph them before I sent them.  Undecided

Those look really cute, minouette. What material did you use to carve out your lino print?

Thanks!.. Um, at the risk of sounding a bit literal-minded, the lino is lino (technically, it is sometimes called "softolium" which is a more modern version of linolium for printmaking). Or are you asking about tools? I have a set of lino carving tools.

I recieved an awesome package from koi!



I got one of her lovely necklaces in the perfect colors for me, green and yellow. It matches my favorite dress perfectly!



Have a look at all the different beads, buttons and bows; this girl has got an eye for matching colors and shapes! (Did I mention how much I love the necklace??)



I also got this super-cute purse, with a crochet matrioshka doll on the front. I love the fabric flower she's decorated with, so creative!

A lot of thanks to you koi for this lovely, colorful package!



minouette: those lino-prints are awesome!

I'm going away for a week on Sunday, and probably won't have much, if any computer access at all.

Koi will keep things running meanwhile. For those of you who haven't sent/recieved yet, please notify koi if you do so during this period.

I will leave feedback for those who are green before I leave.

Thanks!
