2013 part 2 of 2

Our doll club met yesterday and we received our dolls back from the final pass of the "round robin" - remember this one - year ago (almost) she looked like this when I gave her up...... Now she has arms, is dressed, beaded, laced, and given an umbrella. I think she turned out nice. 8 people have worked on her over these months and everyone did a really nice job.

2013- part 1 of 2

It is hard to believe that we are already 3 weeks into the new year. Time is flying. I have been fortunate enough to spend the past 2 wekends with friends. We covered a notebook and then there was dollmaking. First we covered a composition notebok with scrapbook papers - I am really happy with how mine turned out. My good friends know I have an "addition" to journals and notebooks - so I loved thi
s project. The next day I had friends over and we worked on our dolls. Whatever dolls we wanted. I wanted to finish a doll I started a few years ago. It was anne hesse's garden party doll. I finally finished her today and I am thrilled with the outcome. SO happy with her - all the colors and textures are fun. I used beads from my grandmother's necklaces to make her necklaces as well.
