The "Dolls in the Attic" Retreat is now over, but what an amazing creative experience it was - five days and five nights with the five most renowned and talented divas of cloth doll making - elinor peace bailey, Patti Culea, Barbara Willis, Betts Vidal and Sally Lampi. The retreat was the 20th birthday celebration of "Hello Dollies" the group I belong to... and the main night of celebrating was the Pink Banquet. Everyone dressed in pink, and five Hello Dollies members, including me,who were hosts for the night created a "table" doll which was won by someone sitting at our tables. Janice Laurent from Canberra won my doll ( pictured above)
