Doll Fever

It is an icy cold, wet and windy day here, perfect for alternating between a good book in bed and the art cave. Somehow sewing seems to work with the weather. This is the second Dotee Doll I bought as a kit from, well, Dotee. I think the combination of these kits and Kelsey's class has me started on a whole new addiction, perhaps that is why I resisted these adorable little dolls for so long.
I adore Matroushka (there are several spellings of this word) dolls, and have several wooden sets, earrings and more. From the moment I saw the Matroushka Dotee Doll families I loved them, imagine my utter delight when this little family arrived in my mailbox, bliss, pure bliss. I have picked them up to examine their tiny beads and happy smiles a dozen times and smiled a hundred smiles as I walked past them in my kitchen. Thank you Dot.
