Matryoshka

I love old and traditional things from all around the world. Getting to know about other cultures is one of my favorite pleasures. Luckily, I had the chance to travel a lot, though I am still quite young. I am very grateful for that.
Anyway, I have never been to Russia, yet! That is definitely one more country I would love to see. Traveling with the Transibirian Train would be a great experience, I think.
Well, that journey will have to wait. But it inspired me to do this lovely looking matryoshka pin cushion!

























I feel a little sorry, whenever I put a needle in it! ;)

Curiously, I found the pattern on a Japanese website called Tezukuri Town, which means somethings as Handmade Town. It was my first try in embroidery. It was great fun! If you would like to try it, aswell, you can find the pattern here.

    @ mathilde: da hast du auf jeden fall recht! nur dauert es bei mir sooo lange bis eines fertig ist. dann müsste ich wahrscheinlich im märz anfangen, um einen ganzen tannenbaum voll zu bekommen!
