Last Weekend was a fantastic learning get together for fiber art and mixed media. Myself , Tery, Evelyn and Heidi all went to Stephanies house to do some cool mixed media stuff. We made journal covers by first collaging a bunch of beautiful papers onto pieces of muslin, adding shimmer and color all through. While we let them dry...we started creating beautiful embellishments using stamps..clay...fun foam...utee...vellum....fibers and the Diva Cord Maker! and many other things!! Tery made a beautiful cord and now she has it down pat!!!
We finally went to bed after midnight!!! And then got up the next morning (no time even for showers!!)...finished up the journal covers and then stephanie took us right into making beautiful glimmery shimmery material for a pocketbook....we had to do the rest of the work at home...and they are still works in progress...using free motion embroidery and sewing beads and making cords. We were all on "creative overload" that afternoon....it was fantastic...see attached pictures...

Heidi is another very talented doll club member...and actually my very first doll teacher. Heidi taught me a pretty basic EPB doll at the Pocono Sew and Vac. After that class a friend of hers knew that Elinor Piece Bailey was going to teach a class in NJ...so that is how the both of us hooked up with Tery and the newly formed Sew Sew Doll Club (who hosted the EPB weekend) ...The class was fantastic...and we have gotten together every month since that weekend ! Here is Heidi's latest creation... Crow baby ...she made this from a pattern by Ute Vasina....it is absolutely gorgeous!!! See the attached photo ....
Today i received a picture of a precious original doll named Annie from my friend Tery. She is so energetic and excited about making dolls! She is actually the founder our club ... The sew sew doll club! Tery is a talented "mover and a shaker"....ugh...sometimes she makes me tired......but i love her!!! I have included the picture of "Annie"
