The END of a long-running class

My Spring Marotte class on Doll Street Dreamers, is coming to a close after having a running time of 4 years. Whew, who would of thought this little head on a stick would have been so popular??? When I designed her, I wanted to try something totally new and different than anything I had done before. I love needle-sculpted faces, but hate the center seamline. Now I read a couple of how-to articles explaining the process of a "cloth overlay", but I like working with different fabrics than those tried before and knew the only way to go about it was through some trial and error. Luckily, there was no error involved as I soon learned the fabrics I favored were easier to manipulate than those I read about. I work with a stretch cotton for sculpting and a stretch sateen for the overlay---the results, well---obviously pretty good considering the great many number of students I had sign up. I am very thankful to each and every one who joined me on Doll Street. The marottes created by the students, far exceeded my expectations and some really blew me away. There's nothing more rewarding than to teach and share new things with people. If you're interested in joining me for my Spring Marotte class, you can do so from now until the 15th of March. Thanks everyone! ♥♥♥

Hey Veronica!
Yes, head-hunting you must go, LoL!!! I remember seeing your head and it was indeed "pretty darn good". When you find it, let me know-I'd love to see it finished! :)
