And while we are on the topic of babushkas does anyone else have a nesting toy issue? My sister and I are united in our mutual disdain for said toys.
Our babushkas never look like this until about 10pm at night when I have summoned the energy to put them back together. They mostly lie about the house, disembodied or decapitated. Most pleasant.
Then there are the evenings when I don't summon the energy to tidy up and I impale my foot on a babushka body part as I sneak in to a darkened room to check the kiddies. !@*&&$#$)@)!_#&! (read: bother, oh dear and tsk tsk).
Have you checked out Maisonette? Scrumptious blog and über-talented couple making excellently magnificent things through their site Supermobilet! You should check out their stuff here. The Sydney Picnic Blanket is inspired - there is a map of the Sydney coastline on the front of the blanket and the idea is to use the enclosed needle and thread to mark favourite picnic destinations etc. I love it - fantastic family heirloom of the future!
Love to you xx
