June Show & Tell

Our quarterly meeting always takes place on a Saturday so our gals who can't take off work during the week can attend. It's always great to see them! Last year it seems we started a new tradition - a summer luncheon/fabric swap. Our 2nd one was so enjoyable! Good friends, delicious food, lively conversation, beautiful dolls and...fabric!

We got to see some finished dolls from last weekend's Magical Art Doll Retreat. Here is Carlyn's ball jointed doll from the Jessica Hamilton class.

You would never know this was Carlyn's first BJD, would you?

Here are Doreen's Kimama elves from Paula McGee's class. Aren't they beautiful?

The one on the left is the pattern at full size; on the right it's been reduced by 25%.

Love, love, love this little treasure made by Shauna. What secrets lie beyond the door?

More sweet wee folk by Shauna.

And finally, Connie shared a work in progress. Yeah, she's still puttering around with that music challenge doll from April. Someday we'll get to see a finished "Leather & Lace" :)

Next post will be a few shots from the MAD Retreat and before you know it, it'll be July! Happy Threads to everyone!


May Show & Tell

Hello! We're a little behind with our Show & Tell pictures. We wanted to keep you focused on
registering for the first Magical Art Doll Retreat and the June Luncheon/Fabric Swap.
So now it's time to catch up on what's been happening with TDD. Here we go!

Jayne made this camel in a Nancy Gowron class. He is rockin' some massive personality! 

 A little word on this one: Carlyn's mermaid is part of an amazing lamp she made to enter in a local
juried show and it was accepted! We'll show the lamp after the show.

Lisa brought this cutie-patootie. 

 Another of Jean's exquisite beauties.

 She's based on Barbara Schoenoff's "Anneal" pattern. Jean's special touch is a hand-beaded bag.

The MAD Retreat was a B.L.A.S.T.!!! We'll have some pix to show you from that and more info about what all we did. But next up will be some photos from the June Show & Tell. Check back soon!
