Matroyshka update

I am now 80% finished with the large doll which from now on will be doll #1. For now the ball and chain is pinned in place. Boy was it a bugger getting the needle through the sweet gum pod! Tried it on a test piece and it went through like butter, but not on the real thing. GRR... Still have to do the hair, may attempt it tomorrow.

Doll #4 just about has the body finished. It's peyote with size 11 charlottes. Gives a really nice sparkle to the doll.
