Well, I guess I took an unscheduled blog break. But I know you guys get it. It just happens, doesn't it? But I haven't been completely idle. I've been doing some craftiness here and there. Take my new kitchen accessory as proof.
It's a tea towel I embroidered using the Dutch-Russian pattern from Sublime Stitching. Don't you just love how folky-fab it is?
And of course I just had to embroider a little babushka on the back. Could you blame me?
(I know that Russian nesting dolls are not really called "Babushkas" but it is just a lot more fun to say than "Matryoshka.")
I always forget that I love a bit of embroidery. And it's so much cheaper than all my other crafty interests. So to keep the proverbial ball rolling, I already have the next embroidery project "on the hoop." (See, I've got the lexicon down and everything.) I'm doing a pillow with four "Babushkas" on it. I think it's going to be super adorbs. So keep posted.
