A Gift for a friend and a friend's creations....

2.15.2009



The first part of the post is about a gift I made for my friend Maxine. Maxine was having a party and I was at a loss as to what to give her as a gift. I could carry a wine bottle.... but since I don't drink, I can't even differentiate a good wine from a bad one :). The best thing to do would be to give her one of my arrangements that she so loves :). So, that is exactly what I did. I created an arrangement for her just hours before we went to the party :). She loved it.
Yesterday, Sarang and I went to my friend and colleague Cherrie's house to take a look at some dolls she had made using the techniques that Kazuko Miyai showed us. Now, the rest of us, were content to do basic dolls with basic dresses :)- which was no mean achievement, trust me! :). But Cherrie is a an award winning dress designer. She makes beautiful flowers too, but I really really flip for her figurines and the dresses she puts on them :). Gorgeous, just gorgeous! And such amazing detail. I have to get better photographs, but here's what I have right now. So do let me know how you like Cherrie's work.

As for Cherrie's dresses, I can't get enough of them.
