Time For Dolls February meeting

On Sunday we had our Time For Dolls club meeting. We had sooo much fun!! These are pictures of our "Seasons Doll Challenge" dolls. They came out great, the first picture is Vera's doll. This is only the second face that Vera painted - what a great job!! She dressed her little girl doll in clothes from when her daughter was a little girl, such a cute idea.The second picture is my doll, her name is Summer and she is a Patti LaValley pattern. I am so sick of looking out my window at gray skies and snow so I needed some sunshine in my life, in one form or another. The next picture is Evelyn's doll and she is a snow queen. She has snowflakes going down her arms and has beading on her dress and her fingernails (snazzy!) and I love that she used white pom-poms for her hair with some eyelash yarn accent. The next doll is Pam's Give Us a Kiss designed by Colleen Babcock. Instead of hanging her doll from a kissing ball, Pam chose to have her in a stand with her arms outstreached ready for a big hug and kiss, very charming. I love the Mary Englebreight fabric she used for the apron. The next picture is Deborah's Ari Briavel doll from our workshop with Barbara Schoenoff last October. She used beautiful fabrics and the doll is so wintery looking. The next picture is also Deborah's doll it is Father Christmas. He is a stump doll with a gorgeous coat and his head is porcelain or ceramic or clay (sorry Deborah I forgot). And the last picture is Pam's Ari Briavel. She is beautiful in her aqua ultra suede and real fur. Everyone did a great job on the challenge dolls.
Then Pam taught us a very cute art doll that she designed from an invitation that she received. I didn't take pictures of work in progress I was too busy working but the dolls should be done for next meeting and I will take pictures then, it is such a cute doll.
Next month we are going to work on the wrap doll from Ray Slater's book, that will be a great doll to work on as most members haven't done wire armature yet.
There is also big new brewing, I'm very excited but can't talk about it yet. Stay tuned!!

  1. Beautiful dolls. As always, I love your attention to detail. BTW, that wrap doll technique in Ray Slater's book is terrific. I've made one doll with it and was just thinking about making another - if I ever get on with my UFOs.
