Nesting doll(s)

I can't stop embroidering. Or wanting to make pillows. Luckily, the two seem to go together. (Well, they go together if you're a crafty freak.)

A few weekends ago, I stitched this super-cute Russian nesting doll, using a pattern from Sublime Stitching.

Looks adorable, no?

I started adding sashing when my machine crapped out on me. (Apparently, one cannot sew quilts for two years and not have the insides cleaned. Note to self.) It's since been repaired, but here's the work-in-progress. The fabric on the left will be the backing.

I've always wanted to embroider. I should get on that. Sublime Stitching has some awesome stuff!

I haven't embroidered in years. My mom used to buy me pillowcases that had patterns on them to embroider as a way to keep me out of her hair. Cute, but not too great to sleep on!
