fun in houston

By April 23, 2009 June 21st, 2020 2 Comments

Just returned with Ankie Daanen from our fifth “Meet the Dutch Touch” class in Houston, Texas. The picture shows our Houston hostess Marlene Slobin, who did a great job again, with the doll she made in class. The class was held in the studio of Mary Wiggins who wrote a great report on her blog.
We met our friend Janet Bodin again and we found out what these deep canals across Houston are built for: what a rain! Never seen so much water in  my life and believe me: we surely have some rain experience in The Netherlands. Mary’s huge backyard changed into a complete lake and for a moment we thought we needed to have a slumber party with our dolls.
And the good thing was that the weather couldn’t be better on the days that Ankie and I had some free time to sit in the sun so I got home with a sun tan.
But who cares about the weather when you can have so much fun together with making dolls. All twelve dolls in class turned out really wonderful. Marlene Slobin and Mary Wiggins will host the “Meet the Dutch Touch” class again in April 2012. That seems far away, but time flies. One of our students was Sherry Goshon, who offered to host the class in September 2012. Iowa, here we come!
