April Hello Dollies

Great day planning for the Coffs Harbour 'Dolls in the Attic' retreat.
Thanks to Shannon, Ann, Margaret, Vicki and Wilma who will be providing special giveaway dolls, and to all members who have agreed to create some wonderful surprises for all the participants.
Wonderful show and tell - thanks especially to Sharolyn for sharing the beautiful silk embroidery she has of her Peony dolls in a Chinese Peony garden.
Congratulations to Shannon on her two prizes at the Newcastle Show - well deserved, your work is beautiful!

March Hello Dollies

Regrettably I wasn't at the March meeting of Hello Dollies... bad luck for me as there was a lot of creative fun had by all. There were beautiful vintage dolls, and the activity was to make a porcelain half  doll pin cushion like those we admire in antique stores and from Gloria's own wonderful collection. 

 Show and  Tell : Lots of fabulous doll creations, including some progress on our Santos Cage Doll Challenge, and a little collection of porcelain, and some cross stitch , handbags and pin cushions...
What a creative group!

 April Dollies will be on Saturday, 27 April 2013 and remember to bring along your pin dolls which would make great name tags for the "Dolls in the Attic" Retreat in Coffs Harbour in August.
