Handmade Toy Swap

I joined a handmade toy swap a few weeks ago in support of the effort to do something about the law that was going to go into effect limiting how we could produce handmade toys. By the way the effective date for that law has been postponed for a year! Yeah, we can still make toys! Anyway, I received the most darling set of embroidered dolls from my partner Kim.

Aren't they just adorable? I just love them!

This is what I sent her. I made a little family of my matryoshka dolls. I think I may have to do these again sometime. Speaking of making dolls I am hoping to start some new ones soon for Easter. After the dust settles a little from the move.

Both are adorable! I think I remember seeing her photos on flickr. Didn't she use some cute rainbow like floral fabric? I really like doing a toy swap. I think we need to do another one soon ;)
