Deanna Hogans Averill class

On March 5th and 6th there was a class in Eugene, Oregon hosted by the Stitchin Times Doll Club at the Goshen Grange. It was a great class, I learned a lot and really had to disipline myself to make the small eyes like Deanna does. lol! Deanna is a thorough and patient teacher. There were finished dolls in the class which had quite a few beginners, not an easy accomplishment for any teacher! This wqs my first cloth over clay class and I love the technique.

Deanna and I rode down together and stayed at Jean Peter's lovely country home where we were fed, pampered and spoiled with wonderful meals cooked by cook extroidaire Jean herself and gifted with their wonderful hospitality. We even got chucco, a well kept Italian secret. Don't ask! hehehe

the doll in blue and purple is mine and the ones lined up on the table are Deanna's sample dolls.
