The incomprable Anne Hess....Doll Artist extraordinaire

This past Sunday and Monday Anne Hess gave a lovely Garden Party Doll class at Beads and Baubles in Ft. Pierce.  This would be a class " not for the faint of heart ",  as the techniques of doll making would be far beyond what we were beading in the Yahoo Beaded Art Doll Group.  Anne did not dissapoint us in the least.  Deborah Apadoca, Sarah Bromley, Susan Barrett, Alice Salvia, Sandie Alexander ( yep, those Ladies of the Evening girls ), Suzanne Bang ( a soon to be Lady ),   Judy Atwood, Jane Weeks and Ms. Molly had just a wonderful two days working with Anne.  Lot's of laughing, lot's of " Hummms! just a delightful two days spent with good friends and beading.  What could be better?

As always, Deborah kept the film going so we have lots of photographs to share.  Suzanne Bang finished her doll in class, Sarah recently completed " Ruby Red Lips " and Deborah just completed Flora as I was completing the Shibori Blog piece:

Stop by and visit Deborahs blog as she finished Flora.  Now I will be working on Fay ( my fairy garden party doll ).  I believe Deborah said it best.  Her face is serene.


Yes.....size 15 beads.  Gluton for punishment.

Now to some great photographs of the two days and if you have the opportunity to take a class with Anne
you will never be dissapointed.
