Just a quick post here to finish up the show-and-tell from January's meeting. First is Katie, with a 'play' swatch of woven fabric strips, which was then stitched and embellished. She was thinking ahead to our 2011 Challenge, which will feature a large-scale fabric print, and finding ways to break up a large print for use in a smaller doll-sized scale.
Next is another project from Denise. And yes, that is two finished objects, but she doesn't make the long trek into town every month, so she has to prove that she's busy even when we don't see her! In theory, this sculpted head is ready to be painted, but it is so awesome 'as is' that it will probably stay this way, at least for a while.
Finally, we have not a finished project but a birthday haul! Bonnie made her first trip back to doll club after a serious illness (just to get the presents?), and we were all so happy to see her walking around again that we brought the good stuff from our stashes at home to share with her.

That's all for January. Everybody sew like mad so we can have another lovely round of show and tell!
