Doll by my student



I had a lovely surprise from my student. She sent me a picture of the doll she made in the class so here it is. Chitkala did wonders with the pattern. This is what she wrote about the doll
" I am sending 2 pictures of "Nefertiti". The doll insisted onbeing a member of the Egyptian Pharaoh royalty and the headgearseemed to be appropriate. There seems to be only a bust at the BerlinMuseum and I couldn't find a full picture of Nefertiti (except themummy skeleton which is believed to be Nefertiti's!!). After beingshut up in a pyramid or wherever,I am sure she would not mind beingclad in a modern mini skirt and top!!

Oh, she came out beautifully, Shashi! You are obviously an excellent teacher because ALL of your students made great dolls. Wish I could see them all completed! Waaahhh! I want to go sit in your classes! Maybe THEN I could make a presentable cloth doll! Love you! Kai

Your student did a wonderful job, Shashi! You must be very proud of her. I bet it is very satisfying for you to see the wonderful dolls your students create using your doll design.

Thank you all for your lovely comments.
I think the students were all very talented so I cannot claim all the credits.
I would love to teach you Flo Denia and Isabelle. What fun that would be if we all could get together and do a doll one day.
