Okay, after Christmas I will put this all together all pretty, I promise. For now, here's a colorwork chart for the mini-matryoshka face.
Mini-mat chart 1

Note: the red and white are worked as you knit; the other colors you add later with duplicate stitch.
 So when you're done with the knitting part, she'll have a round white face and a Mona Lisa smile.

I just finished putting this together in Illustrator, with some phone consults logged with the estimable Ms. SABLE, and had painstakingly arranged every single square individually, then Mike came home and offhandedly showed me how to do a colored chart in Excel. Sigh. I learned a few Illustrator skills, though, and I know I'll use it for making schematics. But I'm going to give Excel a try and see how that works for the next one.
