– Becky Lynn, Pennsylvania

“I just made my second art doll – a witch! – using the techniques I learned from your art doll kit. All of the felting wool I bought from you. I used a Styrofoam cone as the body/base and covered it in moss. The clothing (except for the hat), I wet felted. The face and hat are needle felted.
Can’t wait to try a santa next!” – Erin Doyle
Ita Rehbach of Washington State needle felted this wonderful fall witch with dyed wool and objects found in nature. She would make a lovely autumn decoration on a nature table. We love the color combinations and the overall composition — beautiful work!

Celebrating Celtic New Year with the Keeper of the Stones
According to Jude, Halloween or Samhain is Celtic New Year. It’s a festival all about all about ancestors, and a time to honor those that went before us and make them offerings.
It is also a time of going into darkness – to dream dreams of what we want in life. To look at life with a different perspective, to let go of what doesn’t work for us and to dream in those things in life that make our heart sing – before it’s time to plant the seeds of our hopes and dreams.
This doll is called ‘Keeper of the Stones’ and she has stood guarding the sacred circle of standing stones for generations. People would make a pilgrimage to the stones to ask for something but always giving thanks.
“To make her I used Living Felt core wool and my favorite star 38 needle on a black soy based foam which helps me work with white wool.”
Jude Lally lives in Asheville, NC and her company is Celtic Soul Craft and she holds a shop on Etsy.
