Challenges
    I just taught another "Woven Tapestry and Needle Felted Doll" class.  This was a two day class.  On Day One, my students learned how to weave the body of their doll on a potholder loom.  On Day Two, they needle felted their doll's head, crocheted its arms, added the legs, applied the hair, put it all together and brought it to life.  My students are, from left to right, Sandy Levine, Elaine Eggink, Barbara Sines and Jodi Glover.
