Weekend with Patti

How privileged we have been to have a weekend with renowned doll maker, artist, author and teacher, Patti Medaris Culea. Patti, as a special friend of Anne's Glory Box, is much loved by Hello Dollies members from both Newcastle and Sydney and her classes have been appreciated and welcomed for many years. This class was no exception and  all were really impressed with the Shiva Paintstiks especially,  the special techniques Patti uses to colour the face of her wonderful creation, LiMei.







And if creating the beautiful LiMei wasn't enough for one weekend, Patti and a few friends were treated by Gloria to a magical evening on Sunday night. We ( yes, I was one of the lucky guests!) thoroughly enjoyed the astounding spectacle , were moved by the evocative music of Andre Rieu, his talented  orchestra and the wonderful surprise stunning performance the famous Seekers.

Update 17 May : here is a photo of the whole group, courtesy of Ann M - thanks Ann.
