For Halloween this year, we thought we'd wrangle up some friends of differing heights and create a set of nesting dolls. 

The skirts are made with 1/2 a hula hoop at the bottom and the hoods have wire sewn in to hold their shape.  The decoration is all felt appliqus. 

Here we are all lined up.

One matryoshka...

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