Pin Doll Swap


Our local doll club had a pin doll exchange with the Cloth-a-Dollics club in Victoria. I scored this little treasure from Donna who is a member and who, coincidentally, was in my workshop at Gibson's Landing Fibre Art Festival the summer of 2008. I am very pleased with this little dancer!

Here's our most recent doll club challenge. There were no rules other than to make something out of a gourd. Her name is Kalyani. Her face and hands are made from 2-part Apoxie sculpt. Her body is made of assorted fabrics, mostly silks.Her upper torso opens to reveal all her treasures...




beading frenzy







Worse than peanuts! I started beading with a red, gold/yellow, then added purple and olive green. I beaded directly on to poly batting backed with heavy duty non-fusible, non-woven interfacing. After I finished I thought it to be a bit too big so.......I made another, then another!
Now for some braid for around the neck and my 3 chatelaines are done!

Off to a good start in 2009


So here's my first project for the New Year! The pattern is from Tricia Cribb's book, "Redwork Quilts"

Gibson's Landing Fibre Art Festival 2008

Many thanks to Kim, Karen, Pauline, Ethel and Donna who shared their creations with me and the rest of the world! Fantastic creativity. Hard to imagine that everyone began at the same place, with the same pattern. Excellent work!

I hope that some of the more reserved members of the workshop will soon join in! (hint, hint!!)

Gibson's rocks!

Donna has outdone herself! Look who has just arrived from Les Folies Bergere! Isn't that feathered headpiece devine?

More great gals from Gibson's



Ethel's been very busy!
Here's Miss Phoebe on the left, and Miss Dottie to her right. I think that Miss Dottie is looking very pleased with her flower garden!



Ethel 's experiencing a creative explosion! and here's Miss Abigail. It appears to me that Miss Abigail is looking for a party! Maybe show off her belly dancing skillls!








Gorgeous gals from the Gibson's Landing Fibre Art Festival
