July Classes at the Beach in SC

I’m back from teaching for another¬†fun filled¬†week in Murrels Inlet, SC.¬† ¬† I can’t say enough good things about all the students I have had this week. ¬†I enjoyed seeing many of my past students and had the pleasure of meeting¬†several new ladies.¬† ¬†I think they have been bitten by the needle felting bug.¬† I don’t blame them.¬† I’m hooked as well!

In my Cat Dancer class I enjoyed teaching a young lady, new to dollmaking.  She did a wonderful job, worked so hard, and left with a completed project.  All I can say is WOW.  Great Job!   

The kitty claws came out among the others trying to see just who could be teachers pet.   =-)    I think it was a 3 way tie.  (You know who you are.)  So many laughs and so much fun.  This class begins with a little sewing, then hand painting, then sewing, stuffing, more sewing, more stuffing, and finally embellishing and making their own style of hair Lots of hard work, but well worth all their efforts to create their own Cat Doll.   A memorable day for us all.  We had a great time. Peg SewingTeacher's Pet ??Wow look at this one!

Finishing off the week with the Tiger Lily class.  The ladies each choose a main color of fabric for their lilies.  Then added additional fabrics from a mound of silks, velvets, satins, sheers, and more.   Add in some  fibers and the fun begins.  They made the most beautiful flowers you have ever seen. 

I am to eager to see all the Tiger Lily wall hangings once they have all their finishing touches.  Beautiful!
