Goddess Doll

This Goddess is Amber Rose - The Goddess of Bountiful Harvests. She was designed for the 2009 Autumn Goddess Swap challenge in my Goddess Dolls yahoo group. She is the first stump doll I have made and I made her using a pattern I designed. Amber Rose was designed for my swap partner, Christen Bills, check out her blog and she the doll she made me here.

If you roll your mouse over a doll, you can see her back.

Autumn Goddess

Sayings Inside:

  • Prayer: May your all your harvests be bountiful and may you always be surrounded by family and friends.
  • Autumn is a second spring where every leaf is a flower.
    Albert Camus.
    Note: I really love this quote as my swap partner's favorite season is Autumn and mine is Spring; this quote brings both together.

Techniques:

  • Bead Embroidery
  • Machine embroidery done with melt-away stabelizer so that I had virtual appliques that I sewed onto Amber Rose
  • Brick Stitch shoulder pads
  • Peyote ruffle neckline
  • Needle felted hair
  • Face was sculpted using hand stitching and painting

 

Meanings:

  • A basket of apples because my swap partner loves to go apple picking
  • A cat cham because my swap partner loves cats
  • A bouquet of various items harvested in the Autumn
  • Autumn colors
