Just clearing out some old books for the charity shop this morning when I came across a Welsh children's book - Babwshka - which I'd forgotten we had .
Russian Christmas story - with lovely illustrations of Matryoshkas and a Russian girl

Can't wait for swap to begin!!!

Wow holistic knitter!  That is an awesome find.  I love it when things like that happen.  It's like finding a tiny bit of buried treasure.  lol 

I have sent in my questionaire, hope I can join in the fun...

I love Matroyshkas!  I have several that I have bought on my trips to Russia.  I have been lucky enough to go to Russia 4 times.  I LOVE it!  Such a rich history...

If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that you tried.

^^ Oh yes. I've only been twice, so mclianne has the edge on me, but yep, it's what you see on TV with knobs on Wink It's also frustrating, insane, complicated and you spend a lot of your time going  Angry but that's also part of the charm - and the White Nights in St Petersburg are something you should have on a list of things to do before you die.

Holisticknitter, what a find! I studied Russian at Swansea and that's exactly the kind of quirky thing we used to keep our eyes open to soften up one of our professors Grin

Who's excited for partners???!?!? I AM!  Grin

Anyway, I've decided to make the cutoff for this swap tomorrow evening at 5pm CST time. I'll post the list of partners and then later in the day I'll start emailing everyone.

We're almost there! YEAH!

It feels as though this sign up period has been running for EVER!! I can't wait for partners, though I guess the time difference will mean it's Saturday morning for us Brits Huh

ETA - no, it's 11pm like now. Good job I'm blonde

I've been to Russia, but only by land crossing through Mongolia and NE China.

I do NOT recommend land crossing into Russia! It's a nightmare!  Shocked
