Home from Adelaide

Here are some photos I took at the Patti Culea class we had in Adelaide. Patti is sitting in the centre in the first one and in the background of the doll in the second.
We were making Viviana, one version of which is the red headed doll.
There were lots of beading techniques to learn and we had a really fun two days, although they were pretty tiring. I dont very often work with the tiny size 15 beads and had trouble seeing what I was doing but I have lots of samples and a rather angry dolls head, I may make another head as she seems to have a rather broken nose. Being me I also managed to get two left legs so another thing to do when I have time.
We stayed with my friend Kate in her lovely house and had to cross the Adelaide traffic in peak hour both ways so I have come home decidedly tired.
Very hot here for Adelaide today and blowing a gale which it also did last Monday so unfortunately I cant see any reason to dust yet.
I go to Adelaide again on Sunday and bring Patti home with me for a few days and put her on the plane for Melbourne on Wednesday.

I don't see any sewing machines - did you stitch it all by hand. I can't imagine how you manage to do all the fingers separate? I will be in Adelaide fro 3 October to 28 October so hopefully we can meet up during that time.
