September show and tell

So here's the stuff from our very fun September meeting -- show and tell is always the best!  Katie has once again brought a stunning, original, finished creation to share.  This one is a tassel doll named Gorgeous Greta.

The base of this doll is a beautiful antique tassel.  Her head, hands, and feet are sculpted by Katie from polymer clay, in scale to match the tassel.  Her hat and stole are real fur, darling, and she has a beaded purse to die for.
Also, check out her shoes!!!  These beaded sandals are just amazing. Please visit Katie's blog to see more in-progress pics.

Next up is Martha, who brought her finished doll from Leslie's GwynnEllen class last fall.  Her name is She Sells Seashells.  Martha has a small fondness for beads, so please note the beaded seaweed fringe, as well as the individual beads on her stockings -- very sparkly.
Martha also brought a few of the scarves she has been knitting in all her spare time.  It turns out that sock yarn is good for more than just socks.  Look for some of these scarves for sale at our November show.
And lastly, Andrea brought a sample of the little cloth doll she will be teaching next weekend as part of the State Museum's annual 'Stitch In Time' series of fiber art workshops.
Don't forget that our Fassett Fabric Challenge Dolls are due next month!
