October Little Art Dolls


I forgot to take my camera to Hello Dollies last week, so the only photo of what we did is a photo of the little art doll I made. If anyone else from Newcastle or Sydney Dollies has taken photos, please email  them to me so I can update this blog. For those of you who weren't there, it was again another fun day. Fay King had made a couple of samples of these art dolls for us  - a design by Sharon Mann, first seen by Sydney Dolly , Fay Bowen in BeadUnique, Fall 2005. These little dolls can be made with pieces of fabric or paper, and just let your imagination go wild with embellishment. There were really a lot of others made on the day which were better than mine. I originally started with a button for the head, but it just wouldn't stay there, so I replaced it with a stamped polymer clay face bead.
Some reminders - Fay is now collecting Christmas dolls (and other goodies) for gifts to be given to Centacare. Christmas will soon be here and the last Dollies for the year, the Christmas Dollies, will be in Newcastle on Saturday 19 December. The swap gift will be a Santa (maximum size : 6 inches/15cm).
Did you also remember the Christmas  border print we received as a gift in  July - what about leaving a comment on this blog about what you have done/intend to do with it before the December meeting?
To all those going on holidays in November, have a great time.
best wishes,
Wilma
PS Almost forgot - keep working on your ideas for the Oriental Dancer challenge.
