Crackers On Their Way

I made three Christmas crackers for exchange.  They're filled with stitchy things, some of them bought here.  I hope their new owners like them!

All the items in this room were collected from the surrounding village.  Many of them were in use through the Soviet era.  They don't have them properly cataloged and preserved yet, but a lot are interesting to look at.

All the Way from North Carolina

I've received the first of  three Christmas crackers!  It's pretty and from North Carolina and anonymous.  I won't open it until Christmas Eve.

Little Bits

Small pieces of sidewalk and shutters all done.

Dancing Feet

I forgot to mention yesterday that the music the kids were dancing to was live.  Here's the band.  More pictures of the dancers, too!

Sent to Scotland

 I sent this temari to Scotland for Stephen D in an exchange.  I like the look of it, even though it's that one simple design I did about four times now.  Anyway, he got it two days ago.  His to me is still in the mail.

Making It Bumpy

There's more to this band than was shown before.  Here's the top taking shape!
