OK...maybe I am a little slow today.  Tired just help friend try to set up her craft area before the weekend.  We have to finish tomorrow.  :0)

My question is...the main theme is to make MATROYSHKA/NESTING DOLLS.
Wondering cause the nesting dolls can take all 5 points. 

I am sorry if I am being difficult....tired brain....sleep sleep....sleep.  Please forgive me I was excited when I saw this swap....love making them.

Exactly what I was wondering, this whole not having a universal date writing thing always messes with my head exceedingly x_x

Panda, my understanding is that it's matryoshka themed items - could be bags, dolls, jewellery, whatever, but all with matryoshkas on. Of course, I may have that wrong but that's what I thought!

And I've decided that yes, the send outs are 9th October - so I've answered my own initial question too Wink

Panda, do you have a good source for Matryoshka doll blanks?

I'm trying to see if I can't make a soft doll.
