My Little Mrs Russian Doll

I'm trying to finish some of the WIPs that I have around the house before I run out of bags and baskets to store them all in!

I started off with a to do list, but it wasn't very inspiring



The best way to approach it was to just do it! I found these little knitted pieces in a basket waiting to be sewn together. I enjoy the knitting and crochet, but not so hot on the sewing bits and bobs together part.



I think I've had it since last Summer or before even. The pattern came with a magazine 'Lets Get Crafting' and the yarn and needles were supplied with it.

To be fair, once I started sewing and stuffing, it didn't really take that long to finish off. Now doesn't she look better like this rather than a pile of knitted pieces.



I think she's quite sweet with her headscarf and pinny on.




Finishing one thing off has given me the motivation to finish some more (I have a poor bunny with no face).

It's my son's 27th birthday tomorrow and we're having a little celebration tonight to spoil him with a good meal and some presents, so I don't expect to get any more crafting done today.




Take care

    1. Thank you, I'm really not keen on faces, that's why my poor bunny is finished except for a face! x

  2. Your little doll is very cute!! It is amazing how quickly you can get things finished and then you wonder why it took so long don't you - or is that just me! Hope you have a good time with the birthday celebrations! xx

  11. She is such a sweetheart, Cheryl! I threw all my WIPs into one big see-though box and promised myself to finish one project per week. So far I have a 50% success rate as its been two weeks :-)
