Elfling Class with Barbara Schoenoff

Last weekend I took a two day class in Akron with dollmaker Barbara Schoenoff. What a fabulous weekend! Barbara is a terrific teacher, the drive to A Piece in Time Quilt Shop was gorgeous (think of autumn sunlight on miles of gold, orange, and yellow leaves), and the company was delightful.

We had our choice of which of Barbara's Elfling dolls to make. Since I already had two of the other patterns, I chose Finn Darian. Just finished up tonight...a finished doll, can you believe it?!

I especially love his arms and legs. The wrapping of the fibers in different colors makes it look so textured and different which is something I favor.

Wow, you are on a great roll! Love his face, love his HAT. And I recognize that beautiful hand-posing technique. :-)
