The babushka tea cozy is finished. I loved making it. I took the whole face off after I posted yesterday and made it all bolder. I made the eyes bigger and instead of pink nose and mouth I embroidered with red floss. I made the blush slightly bolder, too. I backed the whole back of the doll with linen. The finished babushka fits on a taller thinner teapot from my collection. I never use teapots but I think they are such a pretty shape so I have and display several.
The little doll in the middle I got from Erleperle at her Etsy shop. I think its really cute.
Blogspot is really acting up today. I'll be surprised if this actually posts. - nanette

Love your babushka girl! So cute! You inspired me to make one of my own!

Love your blog too, it's taken me a few visits to figure out that more than one person is posting, I'm goofy like that! But what a neat idea! ;)
