Matyroshka Doll PinKeep

Matryoshka - nesting doll is the most famous Russian souvenir, which is popular with everyone, it is considered to be a phenomenon in the world culture. Here we represent matryoshkas made in different parts of Russia and also Russian traditional dolls which can tell you a lot about our history, customs and culture http://www.stpetersburger.com/html/matryoshkas.html
Matroyshka (pronounced "Matrushka") are Russian nesting dolls. The traditional version of these dolls are made out of wood and nest inside each other. They celebrate mamas & her babies!
Maize Hutton made her own version from felt. These are super simple to stitch up. Be creative! Add hair, beads, sequins, glitter, whatever! You can even enlarge the pattern if you wish to make your dolls bigger. http://maizehutton.blogspot.com/2007/01/matryoshka-doll-for-you.html

Vintage Bluebird Cross Stitch & Embroidery Patterns

I LOVE Blue Birds any thing
Here is a free tutorial and Blue Bird weekly pattern (Free)
Go to
Here’s the latest embroidery pattern set I’ve chosen for the next vintage series to share, charming bluebirds–how nice to have ready for Spring! The birds are mainly worked in cross stitch. I believe this set is at least 60 years old (1940’s). There are seven different patterns for tea towels, one for each day of the week. This style of pattern is known as “Days Of The Week” or “DOW” dishtowel patterns but many used the designs for other things as well. http://tipnut.com/bluebird-embroidery/

Embroidering cutter quilts

I found this tutorial so interesting hope you do to ...Sherrie

On Feeling Stitchy, Shebrews shows you ideas on embroidering cutter quilts. The term "cutter quilt" is for a piece or section of vintage quilt that's still in great shape and can be used for a craft project. This piece above turns into a journal cover.

She also has several other wonderful tutorials
