Jayne's class on Faces

Shari, Rena & I went to Jayne's class on Sat. at the Cotton Patch.....It was a fun and informative class and there were 6 total in the class....Jayne is an excellent teacher and she was kept very busy with 6 students.....Here is an example of my unfinished work....taking a picture and looking at it helps to show where it needs work...like in the shading...... I picked up some great tips from Jayne.....

I don't know all the doll owners or their names for their doll, so I might make something up til someone sends me an email with info :) UPDATE: Jayne filled in the blanks for me. All dolls should now be identified by their maker and/or current owner. If you'd like to know the pattern, just leave a note in the comment box.

August Meeting

Whew, it's been HOT here in T-town! We had a bit of a small turnout for club this month due to vacations and the heat alert. Even these little critters were staying indoors!!They live inside this gourd and Doreen's elf is keeping a very watchful eye on them.He is just adorable.Doreen's pixies came out in the heat and stopped by the meeting on their way to the library. No, they're not checking out books. TDD has a display of dolls at the Hardesty Library this month.
Shirley has been busy while recuperating from knee surgery. Look at this lovely lady...The pattern is from Barbara Schoenoff's "Pas de Deux."Her gown is 're-purposed' from a table runner Shirley got at an estate sale.Her crown is made from an elegant piece of gold lace trim. As the saying goes, it's good to be Queen! If you're in the Tulsa area, be sure to stop by the Hardesty Library and see some of our collection in person.
