And all of that was before we even got to show-and-tell. Katie showed off her new needle-sculpting DVD from Gloria Winer. We all agreed that the features were amazing, but the dimension of the eyes was most impressive.
Leslie also shared some 'doll-by-the-yard' panels that Anne R. bought for her. I don't know exactly where Anne found them, but they are also available from different suppliers online. Just do a search for 'malinda dalton doll panel'. You can dress her with other panels that have pretty Civil War-style dresses.
But wait! There's more! We also had a mini-workshop presented by Katie, who shared Cyndi Mahlstadt's method of making wire hands. This one was made by Ann Chulk, who got very nice proportions on hers on the first try. The first picture shows the palm side, and the bottom picture shows the back of the hand.
Check back in a week or two -- the next post will have pin dolls!
