SFM Cloth Dolls with Attitude! NZ

Monday, March 7, 2011

It's been a bit quiet on the blog.  The Canterbury Earthquake is disruptive still with family on our minds.  Two of our daughters and children had to come home for respite.  They felt like refugees from a war zone and quite understood what it was like to be displaced persons!  So great to have them here, though they have now returned to face the clean-up and the rebuild! 

Not that I haven't been busy, but mostly fiddling with dolls and ideas.  I can feel a creative surge coming on!  I'm advertising my group and also making plans for the next Steam Punk Exhibition.  My grandson Ben is doing a computer design for a course he's doing, so I thought I might make it up to see how it will look.  This one will be a challenge for me!  I've also got Thenardier the Innkeeper on the go, as well as a Gnome pattern - amongst other more secret things.  If I didn't have to go to work............ 

I am enjoying taking the Online Class with CDA.  It's great to get questions and it gives me ideas of what might not be included in my pattern that would be useful.  People can go at their own pace and we can show each other pictures of progress to check hopw things are going.  Quite interactive!
