Here’s my first attempt at an amigarumi Earth Mother/fertility Goddess. I used blue and green yarn to represent earth and sea. In retrospect I wish I had finished with a darker blue – then it could have been from the top down sky, earth, and sea – the sacred realms of Druidism. The Autumn Equinox is coming up and I’m thinking of making one in harvest colors for a sacrifice.
And finally, what you’ve all been waiting for – another tree spirit! Here she is – a lovely little apple tree. She was made with recycled felt and stuffing. Her eyes are plastic beads but the apples are red stones. She has a wire armature and is definitely not for children. Weretoad claims that she looks more mature than the first tree I made. I’ll have to photograph them together sometime and get opinions on that!
I’m already working on a third tree. I emailed Skip today about ADF consignment and whether or not he needs any help getting things on the site because I’d really love to sell these guys through ADF. I’m planning to make a simpler and more complicated variation so I can vary the price a bit.

the Goddess is certainly well-endowed 😉 when I first saw the pic of your newest tree spirit, I thought it rather looked like a holly: the little red beads resemble berries, and the jagged leaf outline contributed too. Maybe little red felt balls with a tiny leaf by the stem would look more like apples? Either way, they're still adorable and I still plan on getting one! 😀
I thought the same thing when I finished it, but the leaves are deceptive. They're actually not the right shape – it's the lighter colored blanket stitch that makes it look like holy in the photo. But it does make me want to make another with holy shaped leaves. All the same, if someone wants to think of it as holy, it doesn't bother me! 🙂
