MATROYSHKA DOLL GIVEAWAY

As tomorrow, Sunday 2nd March 2008, is Mother's Day here in the UK, i am giving away my very first handmade matroyshka Doll. To me this doll represents Motherhood, and so it seems appropriate that it should be given away with love at this time of year.

The doll is of my own design, and i've 4 other dolls already designed, just waiting to be made.
There are over 100 seed beads individually sewn on to the doll, and it is entirely hand-sewn. The face is hand embroidered with silk cotton.


So how do you get your hands on this doll. All you have to do is leave a comment on this blog, and on March 16th (my late Mother's birthday), i will draw a name out of a hat for the winner. Of course you must have a blog so that i can get in touch with you if you are the winner. Goodluck everyone.

Just another way to say thankyou to every one of my craft friends, that i have made over the past year here on line. I've had a great time getting to know you all, and hope our friendship long continues.
