Doll Club - August

I see that I haven't written anything in a month. But, I have a good reason for that. I'm going to save my excuse for my next post.

We had a great time at doll club yesterday.  We started off with our round robin dolls and everyone explained what they did to the dolls. They are coming out great, our members are so creative. I will post pictures of the finished dolls but I don't think that will be until January.

Then we had our show and tell. I brought in my marionette and my Chun Woo doll as did Pam. Paloma brought in some cute bead dolls that she made and Mickey brought in this great 3 piece art quilt of a doll figure that was a round robin at one of her other doll clubs. Unfortunately, I didn't take pictures of either of those. But Sue made an adorable doll and I did take a picture of that. Isn't she darling?

Then Carolyn headed up an activity that was so much fun. She made 10 dolls in different shapes. Everyone chose a doll by grabbing it from a bag. Then you had 7 minutes to decorate the doll, anyway you wanted. After the 7 minutes was up everyone passed the doll to the left and then you had 7 minutes to decorate the doll you received. This went on until you got your original doll back. It was so much fun! Here is a picture of my doll, then a group picture of everyone's dolls.

Carolyn did a lot of work on making and stuffing all these dolls. Thanks Carolyn, great job!!!!

Vera came by to say good-bye. She has decided to leave the club and dedicate her free time to quilting. We will miss her sense of humor.


  1. It looks like you all had a huge amount of fun! What a lot of work from Carolyn. Way to go!

  2. You're right - the meeting was a LOT of fun! And the little pass-around project was fabulous. I love my little softie. Thanks for the kind words on my doll.
