I feel old! like my Babushka, my Czech great-grandma who called me her little babushka. "Matroyshka" (Russian) is the common word used these days, but they are really the same.
My babushka was an extraordinary woman living on a South Dakota farm and raising many children, including my mom. She got through so many incredibly hard times with Prayer, and hard work. I had the joy of her in our lives until I was 12. and her humble life as gardener, seamstress, quilter, major pray-er, and super loving woman, inspire me every day. I am SO grateful for getting to know this woman!
I finished my first Babushka dress, and am enjoying this embroidery. Here is the other side of this reversible dress
and a hat that woud be cute with it...or a headband with this flower
