Pressing on, I’ve done the back of the seahorse now. Linda suggested I leave the masculine face alone, clearly it wants to be that way, so who am I to argue with it. I added a little more to the top of the head, but no photo just now. I’ll show you that when I have this piece all together.
For now, this is how the back looks. We had some discussions around whether to add the dowel now, or later. I opted for now because i knew what i wanted to do on the back and had visions of body parts flying off in all directions.
If you’re wondering about the Rabbit doll. Click here to see where I left off. I have decided to put it in a box in the corner and create a dreaded UFO. It’s the worst class I’ve ever done online and will never do another one with her again. I’m still waiting for the last lesson, it’s been 6 weeks of time wasted on something I should have just created on my own.
I thought long and hard about whether to critique the class in a negative way out of respect for the teacher, but then common sense took over, emotion went away and I decided that for the sake of anyone else considering taking this class, you are forewarned. I could go into a lot of detail but I won’t. Suffice it to say that, if you know me well enough, you know that I call it as I see it and that’s what I’m doing now. Sherry knows how I feel, I’ve told her directly and she does get my blog updates, so I’m not hiding behind anything when I post this.
I can be a patient person and understand that when you’re thrown one curve ball after another in life, it throws you into a chaotic state, we’ve all been there at one time or another. There comes a point of no return when you run out of patience and understanding, and I’m there. I am a student and all I want is what I paid for, that’s it. Understanding only buys you so much time, after that my pendulum will start to swing the other way, which it is now.
So for the sake of others who might be considering this class, well it’s a beautiful doll for sure, but you better be able to work independently or you will surely have problems.
