Tuesday Treats: A Stunning doll for Christmas

One of the great treats that comes from being a guest speaker, taking the Aurifil thread products story  to Guild meetings, is the opportunity to see the members’ show & tell.

I love seeing the wide range of patchwork, and  textile talent, that the members share with each other at their meetings, and each guild is always different.

This incredible doll, made by Barbara Strickland, was a highlight at the show & tell at the  Point Nepean Patchwork Guild meeting in October.

Barbara-StricklandWhen Barbara gave me permission to share my photo she said that she made this doll, and all the clothes and accessories, at classes with Helen Pierce in Mornington (Victoria).

You can see that the St Nicholas doll is quite tall and his jacket, and the eggs, were beautifully beaded.

Just stunning! and a beautiful Christmas decoration.
