I had a small but dedicated group of wonderful students: Annie, Debbie, and Janet. Oo la la - what great fabrics they brought to work with and put together in such fun combinations! We were all so busy sewing that I forgot to take pictures! (So I hope my dear students will send me some pics!)
Saturday night at Art & Soul was vendor night. Janet helped me move my gear over to the lobby and then she and Ann W. quickly help me set up and they did an awesome job of merchandising!
My storybook doll Dorothy Gale found a new home that night. I will miss her dearly, but I am happy for her and her new mom!
Elinor Peace Bailey came to Vendor Night! What a thrill it was to meet her - I was so starstruck! (For those who might not know - Elinor is one of the biggest names in the world of doll making.) I have always been in love with Elinor's sense of color and whimsy, and now I got to meet her in person! She is just as colorful and delightful as her creations, as well as warm and joyful. I'm still giddy!
What fun it was to meet the other teachers at Art and Soul, too - all such wonderful teachers!
Jean Van Brederode and I have a little something in common when it comes to picking our outfits, don't you think? I may get the opportunity to teach out east with her later this year!

Thank you, thank you, thank you, Glenny Moir, for giving me the opportunity to teach at Art and Soul this year! I had a wonderful time and I look forward to doing it again!
