March 2012 meeting

Another great meeting, with 16 people in attendance and lots of pretty dolls to see.  We also found out about an art show possibility in June, so stay tuned for more info to come on that.  Now on to show and tell!

Ann R. wins the 'Most Stuff Accomplished this Month' prize, with not one, not two, but three finished dolls to share.  Ann has made several of Gail Wilson's dolls in the past, and they are all just perfect.  This one is a little pioneer girl.

Check out the closeup of her button bonnet.  This is an historic style, but a hard one to find much info about.  I did find a pattern modeled from an adult's antique bonnet, and a cute new baby version, too.  As they say, everything old is new again!
Next, also Ann R.'s doll, is Kewpie, fully dressed in feedsack fabric.  See the January meeting for the 'naked' picture of this Kewpie doll in progress, with pattern info.
Finally, we had lots of finished Chun Woo dolls from our Leslie Molen class a few weekends ago.  We got them mostly done in class, but now they have pearl earrings and lovely purses hanging from the ribbon sashes at their waists.
