From Russia with love....

 ...or in this case from a Hungarian blog.  I came across this one just by chance and have found out that Manka is a very talented designer.  This sweet little nesting doll was one of her free patterns and I just fell in love with it.
As for the fibers, the three spools that you see are a new fiber, or at least to me it is, from Japan that is a 100% cotton.  It comes many ways but this one intriqued me.  It is a two actually comes off the spool two ply....and it doesn't knot.  I had no problems with tangles or anything like that.  I purchased them from Jojo's Quilt Shop and received them very quickly.  I really love the sheen of this fiber and I know I'll be purchasing more of it.
Don't forget to sign up for my giveaway!
Blessings as always,

Thank you ladies!!1 I was thinking no one was paying any attention to this month of international designs. I'm working on one right now from Australia and that will be posted in a day or two.
Thanks again!!
