Yowzers!  Two fabulous doll classes in less than a month! 
I’m on starstruck overload after spending two glorious days in New York with another of my heroes, Ankie Daanen.

 The workshop was sponsored by Gwen Jackson and we stayed at her home, which made getting to work on time really easy!
Here is Pat Adamczyk, my roomie.

 And here is my creation as it stands right now. Obviously, I’ve got a lot of work to do, but I’m very proud of this one. After years of saying “I just can’t sculpt in clay,” well, I guess I can after all! One of the secrets here is watercolor paints and I went out first thing this morning to buy my own set (I've got nearly as much studio space dedicated to paints and clays as I do fabric!)  I’ll be sure to post the completed doll, hopefully in just a few days.

Here’s a few more pics of our class:

  3. Heather, yes, life is good and I live for those times and the best is when you can get together with friends to create!

    Colleen, thanks for the compliments, they mean a lot, especially coming from as talented sculptor as you! Let me know where you are teaching again as I'd love to take a class from you!
