Thanks and Latest Doings

Thanks Vee, Shashi, Allie, Heera, and Connie on my CQ Block. Thanks too to Kai, Katie and Mary on my cloth over clay head. He is now a doll--I used the APWPWD challenge doll to make the skin for his armature before I wrapped it with yarn and dressed him. Truly a "blank canvas" for sure! I'm not sure if I can post pics before the contest deadline, so I'm keeping him under wraps. I will however post a pic of the doll I finished for our GSDA Christmas swap. We usually do angels but I thought maybe this year we should do an elf. I suggested we use Sherri Goshon's Eflin pattern and the club agreed. I made it in doe suede which I'm not familiar with (thanks Mary for turning her!), and I don't like working this small (about 8"), but she is done.

Joy to everyone this holiday season!

Block Completed

I volunteered to make a block for a CQ friend as part of a healing quilt. Specificiations: it had to be 10" x 10", neutral colors, and include a picture of a cherub or angel. It's been awile since I worked on any CQ, but I really enjoyed it!
Now to get ready for my EGA meeting tomorrow - Beryl Taylor is giving a talk/demo. I'm really thrilled. Friday is Doll Club. Busy week!
