In September I was lucky enough to take a class with Shelly Thornton on needlesculpting heads. I usually don't complete a class piece, preferring it to work as a learning tool, but this little girl spoke to me, and so I created patterns for the body and worked away. Four months later... well she was worth it, I'm very pleased! Just found out Shelly is teaching hands, boots and ribbons at NIADA next September. Think I'll take the class and do this again! Let me know what you think of her.
