The Autumn Dollmaking 2019 Retreat was very well attended and many creations were born
A trio of crowns
Beautiful fences made from Driftwood for the corral
And here are the horses for it…….
and here are the fence makers, Rosemary and Euan Stewart, hard at work.
and lastly two babes in the woods
Here is Doreen, one of our lovely international parents, with her first ever horse she has made. She is observing the Midnight Elves tradition of ringing the bell at the completion of the creation. Maybe you’d like to come and ring the bell……
A relaxed weekend at Gabrielles stitching away with beautiful views
With Dollmakers old and new
Taking home dolls and new skills too
Meanwhile a short hop away a zealous Elf scissors away on her sick bed getting gnome circles and blossom fairies ready for soon stitching hands.
A new dress is finished for a lucky limbed doll
These were some of the creations completed, while many more got started.
Yes it’s happening again – finish your gardening, put dinner on slow cook, give your children a playdate with a neighbour and come and join us for some fun and nurturing at The Midnight Elves Mid-Winter Retreat. This time Gabrielle and Peter are opening their doors for us at 91 Trewavas St, Motueka from 5pm Friday 29 June til Sunday 1 July. Feel free to pop in for a moment, have a cup of tea, collect some stitching or linger longer for a shared meal, good company and a movie on Saturday night. More info later.
A little bird told me that The Midnight Elves are getting ready for Christmas really soon, they are having a weekend of dollmaking at the dollmaking room, November 10, 11, and 12. Hope you can come – spread the word.
