Full Moon Spirit Doll for March
I need to buy some blog posting time because of having no chance right now to start a new project. So here is a post from my long-lost blog -- my Full Moon Spirit Doll for the month of March. Native American tradition calls this the "Full Crow Moon" because of the cawing of crows that signals the end of winter. This is a stump doll (no legs) with a fiberfill body and a base weighted by polished river rocks. I molded the face of polymer clay, and it's attached with bead stacks. Like all my spirit dolls, it has a sprig of sage inside with the stuffing and a crystal beaded to the outside (on the necklace), both for positive energy. The outlined crow is made of black iridescent seed beads on a yellow batik circle representing the full moon.
What's taking my crafting time right now is settling into a small getaway retirement place for boating and fishing. I'll try to get a photo soon, wish us luck!
