Goodman Jeweler's featured artist of the month!

Just a reminder that our club is this month's featured artist at Robert Goodman Jewelers in quaint downtown Zionsville.

Dolls on the walls!
Dolls by Katie, Martha, and Julie G.
As you can see, we've got a lovely layout, with an excellent view of all the comings and goings.

Our dolls look very classy next to all the elegant jewelry on display.  Of course, Martha's dolls usually wear some pretty nice jewels, too.
We've even gotten into the holiday spirit.  Nita's little witch is just one of the beautiful dolls who will be on display and for sale until the end of October.

Busy month of October

The end of the year sees us picking up the pace, and finished dolls are trickling in as we prepare for our fabulous Show and Sale next month!  We had two dolls to share besides the Challenge dolls, which will get their own post very soon!

First is Andrea's, who brought her flower-themed doll Posie from last spring's Annie Hesse workshop.  As usual, her doll was made in a slightly smaller scale than the original pattern called for.  Her skirt is made of innumerable yards of ribbons and lace., and she has beaded elbows, too.

Julie G. brought a new dollie, too.  She knit the Miranda pattern from Fiona MacDonald's book Babes in the Wool.

The textures on this doll are wonderful.  The different yarns are very touchable, and the button belt is playful and musically clink-y.  Her hair came complete with wild dye job, since it started life as a hair extension for big people.

Check back soon for pictures of all 9 (yes, 9!) of this year's challenge dolls!
