My Little by Little quilt group met on Wednesday night and there was some great show & tell. Kathy has become SO good at making dolls! She uses polymer clay to sculpt their faces and hands - every single one turns out differently. Then she sews their clothing with exacting attention to the smallest of details - and she designs her own patterns and finds all the little embellishements that make them so special. Right now she is working on some Christmas elves - she has orders for six of them.
Here are two heads that don't have bodies yet - their expressions are so sparkling and mischevious! I love the freckles on the girl elf.
She also showed us this quilt that she's stitching the binding - it will be sent to her son who is serving a two year mission in Uraguay.
Jayna has been making jewelry for several years now, but she just took a class and learned some new techniques to go along with the soldering that she's perfected. Now she can make her own bezels - and add a lot of depth and dimension to her work using resin. I'd say these have a slight steampunk vibe to them. Very fun!
I love rubbing shoulders with these friends each month and seeing what new projects they've been working on!
