The Sasha Celebration Weekend (SCW)
We arrived at Eastwood Hall on a beautiful day!
Janet looks very happy to be there! The trip from her house was an easy one. 🙂
A strange photo but I love that tree in the distance.
The lobby where we entered already shows signs of a special Sasha event. Theresa was already very engaged in wonderful decorating of Sherwood Forest and a few merry men. She was also providing friendly car services for travelers. 🙂
Lovely program for the SCW. I managed to get it home without folding it. 🙂
A wonderful time ahead for us all.
I was so very happy to meet Kendal after years of writing back and forth on blogs, it was a dream come true for me. I was thrilled to have a part in setting up Kendal’s Sasha brood display. ❤
Kendal and her lovely daughter Chon. Many thanks to Chon for her super assistance in bringing Kendal and her stunning Sasha dolls to the SCW and helping to unpack and display them. So beautifully done! 🙂
My photos were taken at different times during the set up of the Kendal’s Sasha Brood.
Little Miss Nobody, I think! 🙂
Clarise or Gertie 2. ❤
So many stunning, gorgeous Sasha dolls. I was in Sasha heaven’ ❤
Miss Lippy looking quite wonderful and I really liked the special pine cones Kendal placed here and there. Lovely neutral and yet natural display background for her Brood. ❤
Fabulous no navels 🙂
Clarise or Gertie 2. Wonderfully painted by Janet. ❤
It was wonderful to see Kendal’s studio dolls to include her studio bebe plus her lovely course doll. 🙂
While walking around the premises with Janet, we came upon Dee and Paul taking photos by a fabulous tree that I had noticed through a window while walking inside of the Hall. I asked Dee if she would take a tree photo for me since I had left my phone/camera in the room and here it is! Thank you Dee! What a fabulous tree! ❤
Lovely antique paper dolls donated by Ann Chandler for a silent auction. So nice to see the cake pops again! 🙂
A beautifully wrapped present from Kendal to me. Thank you Kendal! ❤
Inside is a wonderful box of chocolates with Gertie’s photo on the box top. How thoughtful! 🙂
I love this box and will keep it with my special Sasha gifts. ❤
The chocolates were delicious and Rick enjoyed them too! 🙂
A photo of the instructions to assemble the marionette in DollMum’s workshop. The plastic lid was a work surface to use glue when needed. I loved having the detailed instructions which gave me confidence that I could do it however, I still needed some individual attention from DollMum and she graciously provided me assistance. Great fun and Finn loves the marionette! ❤
I was able to make a quick Sasha mask and to sew a button on Jane’s knitted bag but do not have photos of them. Sadly, I missed Emma’s shoe workshop and Judith’s play mat workshop. All of the workshops were wonderful and many thanks to all of the ladies for donated their time and talent to conduct them. 🙂
Not the best lighting but some random photos of the dolls in the back of our meeting room.
My Gertie dressed in a new outfit made by Janet. I think it is Dee’s wonderful Jamie next to her on her left and Ann Chandler’s Rachel on her right side. The beautiful brunette Gotz girls holding the marionette belongs to Janet. 🙂
The Sherwood Forest display early before everyone arrived.
Janet made these fabulous course doll outfits and you may recognize my Mary who is Maid Marion above. I love the costumes!
Peek-a-boo, I see you there among the leaves! 😉
Janet’s brood. ❤
I think most of these lovely children belong to Diane Duke. 🙂
Congratulations Jonny! He won the last raffle item which is a fantastic customized Sasha by Janet. A wonderful way to end the raffle time which was all very enjoyable.
I think everyone there won a prize or two and it was such fun to watch the happy faces of those while they were selecting their prizes. I loved that time together. ❤
I realize now looking at my photos and comparing them to other blog posts that have already been posted about the SCW, that I certainly have some major gaps in my coverage of the events. I think I was so very focused on meeting everyone and enjoying the time together, that I did not always think about the camera. I hope you have enjoyed seeing these photos too. 🙂
I had the very best of times at Eastwood Hall and experiencing the events of the SCW. I will always remember my special visit to Nottingham and meeting so many of my dear Sasha friends. ❤ xxx
note: I will post photos next on the blog of the sales room purchases. 🙂
