It is time for Autumn....... I see the leaves falling and the birds feeding and the feathers twirling and the clouds turn burnt orange at twilight....... And so here we are over half way through September. Time I feel to give a little something away, as a thank you for all your kind comments over the past several weeks. Indeed it's been a few months since I moved house from novembermoon to this new blog, and I have almost, just almost got the hang of how it works and how it can work for me. Again a thank you to you for updating your bookmarks and continuing to read.... So today I am offering this tiny yesterday's doll - I'm calling her September. Which seems like the name of a wise woman, but perhaps she was.... These anonymous photographs delight and intrigue, and I especially like this young girl's face. Her serious, lost-in-thought expression. This tiny doll can be yours, if you like, if you would care to leave a comment here. I'll make the draw on Friday evening. Someone will win her but there can only be one....
This doll has been made using fabric dyed with violas. And as I described the process of dyeing with flowers here, earlier in the Summer, she seems like a good choice to give as a small gift.
This journey, with its twists and turns, seems to be keeping me very busy right now. But these shifting tides and seasonal changes require some alertness. Some kind of knowing. I know my body clock is a bit wobbly, I suppose you could say. Hence my drinking valerian tea before bedtime (see yesterday's post). I'm not getting quite enough sleep but I know this happens at this time, and then I'll get used to the shortening days and enjoy the long dark evenings. I think I can.
New work added yesterday to my own shop
Hearts series continues over at etsy.
I hope your week is going well x
