Russian Proverb

Here's a wallhanging that I made for our guild challenge this September.  I have a background in Russian Studies and own lots of matroyshkas that I bought during my visits.  I've been fascinated with the trend of quiltmakers using these motifs during the past few years.  Anyway, this is the best I could draw from some of mine.  The translation of the Russian proverb is:  "The egg does not teach the hen."
