Cincinnati bound with the Guilded Lilies

 The River City Doll Makers club invites the Guilded Lilies down to Cincinnati every other year for a fun day of sharing, eating, and demonstration.  This year since I now have every weekend off, I got to ride down with Marilyn and Lynda.  It was such a fantastic day with wonderful weather and so much laughing.  The demonstrations were so wonderful.  I forgot to to take a photo of Holly's demonstration of fabric techniques, but she let each and every single one of us take home a sample.

Robbie sharing some fabric embellishment techniques.

Katie showing us how to use gesso, molding paste and new water colors to make a three dimensional art piece. 
Marilyn brought her bead embroidered hat for show and tell.  I just had to have her model it for me.
Judy taught us this class on how to make flowers with circles of scrap fabric

And what better way to bond than with lots of delicious food?

Cody's show and tell.  Can't remember if this is the self portrait or the Buck doll.   But I did enjoy playing with him.

Katie shared her bird from the Christine Shively class at AFICC

I can't remember the name of this doll maker, but isn't this just great?

Inez's Anne Bolyn doll

Robbie was celebrating her 10th year anniversary with the River City doll makers and shared this cake with us.  And oh yes, it was delicious
River City doll makers made a delicious lunch for us.

Inez, Liz and Lynda catching up on gossip and fun times while waiting for lunch.
Lynda and Marilyn.  Marilyn is a beader too and asked if we wanted to go to Lebanon to go bead shopping. Well twist my arm!  I think the three of us were buzzing with the delicious frozen custard Lynda treated us at Whits in downtown Lebanon.

I so loved seeing Lynda, Inez and Liz. I would like to come back to Ohio for A weekend and learn from them. Personal time.

I see a parallel with Columbus and Cincinnati Ohio clubs and Denver and Colorado Springs here in CO.

Dolls rock!
