A Busy Week!

I have just arrived home from a busy week in Adelaide. I was there to teach a class for the S.A. Cloth Doll Guild. I ended up with 13 in the class, which was a perfect number, and they were all great workers! The class was instruction in making my 'Moxie' doll, with a couple in the class also requesting instruction in sculpting a doll head. Here is a picture of some of the class hard at work.....(note the wonderful workspace - it is a large classroom at the back of 'Hetties Patch" a quilt shop on Port Road........I was a little worried about the beautiful quilts on display with paint and stuff flying around, but we managed not to get any on them!)
I stayed in the Adelaide Hills with Peta Stuart and her husband, Greg - if there were more like these wonderful people, then there would be a lot less strife in this world. My heartfelt thanks to them both for looking after me so well.

Peta and I worked at night after class (as you tend to when you stay with another dollmaker) and I managed to get some of my own work done - these two zoziedolls and this head.

Peta took me to Strathalbyn on Saturday to visit Lorell Lehman who makes original dolls and fabulous fantasy pieces. She works from a tiny studio attached to an equally tiny gallery - small but perfect. Do yourself a favour and visit http://web.mac.com/lorelllehman
