"Full Hunter's and Harvest Moon" Spirit Doll for October


At the peak of this full moon's light, harvesting and hunting can be done into the night. Ready for gathering are corn, pumpkins, squash, beans and wild rice.  I hand-embroidered the face and glass seed beads adorn the body as well as the bow and arrow on the moon. Inside with the stuffing is the usual sprig of sage and polished river rocks for standing weight.

  5. I love the way the beads around the face look like corn in honor of the harvest.

    1. I meant to say that we saw the Moon last night. It was low in the Eastern sky.

  6. I love the blanket and the beads. This is another amazing doll. You need to make more, maybe not the same theme, but these are some of the best dolls I have seen. Happy Friday. Hugs-Erika
