October Show & Tell

This is the last post from our October Show & Tell. Next weekend, many of the group will be eagerly participating in a workshop with our special guest teacher, Cindy Moyer (website here). We are so looking forward to this! The workshops are always such a great time to get together and get creative. In the meantime, check out the creativity of some of our newest members:

Pat brought some dolls that she said she made awhile ago before discovering TDD. Aren't they precious? Beautiful faces!These young'uns look like they have a secret, hmmm?

Shauna is new to the world of art dolls and primarily enjoys sculpting.

Each person in the club has a style; each one unique and glorious.These are Shirley's Izannah Walker dolls which are soft-bodied with sculpted heads. She works with a variety of medium; Shirley is willing to try anything once! The beauty of art expression is unlimited!

Does this beautiful mask make you wonder about the lady behind it? She must be breathtaking and mysterious.Elegant and oh so alluring.You are looking at an Arley Berryhill creation, proudly owned by Barbara and shared with us at the October meeting.His dolls are so exquisitely adorned. The embellishments and trims are so detailed, you just want to study every little bead. Click here to go to Arley's website and be inspired by more of his fantastic work!


October Club Pictures

Our meetings are always so full of news, catching up, planning, fabric swaps, pattern browsing, and just all sorts of excited chatter, but there are 3 particular highlights that everyone looks forward to: Show & Tell, the Door Prize drawing, and the Program.Sherry brought a colorful confection to Show & Tell; it's not one she made but bought from Joyce. Sherry also won the much coveted door prize this month. She was so excited to win for the very first time. The DP was a long-legged cutie appropriately attired for the Fall Festivities.Pam made the door prize this month and we all knew it would be wonderful, as they are every month! Pam's Show & Tell had a great story to go with her. She is modeled after a high school friend and will be a gift to her at the next reunion. Pam said this gal has faithfully planned the reunions & stayed in touch with everyone all these years. Pam's husband, who clearly appreciates his wife's talent, suggested she make a doll as a way of thanking her. Her little cheerleader outfit was modeled from a yearbook picture. The socks are baby socks, cut to fit. And the shoes - well, you need to be at club next month because Pam is going to demonstrate her cobbler techniques! The football field 'grass' is the stuff used on model train sets. What a fabulous gift for a special friend!


October Club Meeting

This month's header is a picture of a doll Pam made & brought for Show & Tell last fall. The year has surely flown by! But the doll is so cute & appropriate to greet our October blog. All of the monthly header pictures are whimsied up with a little Photoshop magic, just for fun. October is Halloween month and many little boys will want to be Cap'n Jack Sparrow again this year. Although this is not a doll made by Sheri, she thought we would enjoy seeing it. A wonderful likeness of Johnny/Jack!This sweet li'l thing must be going trick or treating as a Ladybug. No plastic pumpkin for her! She'll be collecting candy in her perfectly accessorized ladybug bag.Look at those big green eyes! That bag will be full of chocolate in no time. Miss Ladybug was created by Barbara.Whoa, Annie, git-cher gun! Someone is stylin here! Is this a high fashion Annie Oakley? She is Laurie's work in progress. The body is based on a Dianne Little pattern, the one we did in our workshop last fall.She's beautiful & not even finished. Can't wait to see her all done!

We had a nice show of dolls this month, so be sure and check back to see more.
