With the pond in my local park frozen over and a distinct bite of frost on the air, the arrival of this little Snowflake Sprite in my e-mail inbox couldn't have been more perfectly timed. Sally Leszczynsk (pictured below), one of the students in my Snowflake and Spider Sprite class at Blue Haze Arts & Crafts in Chesham, Bucks is the creator of this frozen beauty.
I love the way that Sally positioned the legs to give the doll a really balletic feel. The beautiful laces and silver paint for the shoes that Sally chose really add to the sparkly feel of snow. Sally also drew a beautiful spritely face and managed to get some wonderful expression with the hands, something I particularly love to see in cloth dolls.
It always gives me a warm feeling to see the finished dolls of my students. Thank you Sally for the warmth on a cold day.
If you would like join in and take one of my doll classes here in the UK, I will be teaching Stitch in Time (pictured below) February 18-19th, 2011 and the About Face Pin Doll Class on February 20th, 2011.
