I found this free pattern on knitty for Matryoshka mittens via Alicia's blog! She posted about some new nesting Matryoshkas that she found at an Oktoberfest.
I've been in a folk art/nature inspired mood lately. I want to set up an autumn tableau on my dining room buffet server (which I got specifically for that, and also serving food I guess!!!) but I can't find my book on Nature Corners! I have books all over my house, so it's got to be here somewhere. I also found this cute etsy site, and with all the acorns in our yard during the fall, I want to make something like this:

Caroline and I made fairies a couple years ago, so I know it wouldn't be difficult. We could even put them in something like this! I have been contemplating doll making lately and folk embroidery.
