Hi Kate and everyone,
It’s been a very busy spring and summer for me. I got my parents moved to town which took up most of May and June and part of July. I have been working on dolls pretty much exclusively since I saw you last. I made another Dragon as I was asked to make a pattern for it and needed to remake in order to write the instructions! I entered that doll and another in the doll conference I attend every year in Albuquerque in July (which was a little over two weeks ago) and got first place and a Judge’s choice on the other doll and send place on the second dragon in my division. I got some great feedback on the dragon which I need to incorporate in the pattern, so I’ll get to make another one to work out the details. I will need to make a fourth as a sample doll to go in the booth of the fabric vendor who’d asked me for the pattern. Whew! That’s a lot of dragons!
I also made a doll as a donation for the conference auction. She went home with an attendee from Arizona. I am now working on a couple of dolls for the quilt show in Houston. I need to have them done, plus another I haven’t started, and in Houston by the end of September, so I’m hopping!
How about you? I have been checking blogs and love the glass beads. Are you and Peg still interested in getting a booth at one of the Christmas art/craft fairs? I’m really pushing to get enough dolls to do that if you guys are still interested.
Talk to you later!
