Needle Felting My Blues Away...

Feeling blah yesterday, I decided to send the girls off to play upstairs and popped a movie in the dvd while I started to felt. I watched "Incendiary" starring Michelle Williams and Ewan McGregor, which was probably a mistake, because it left me crying through about half of it and through the other half, I was utterly confused...

Anyway, I was happy with what came out of it...A summer doll, Mother Earth, who is going to be gifted to a friend, and an autumn doll. I need to spruce up summer and might remove her from her nest and make her free-standing, but it felt good to work through some internal stress this way :)

Still, it is often through our love of others that sadness comes out...when we feel, when we let go, when we share ourselves. After all, what if I were just a rock (like Sylvester turns into after wishing on his magic pebble)? Then I would have nothing to share and no one to share it with. Hmmmm...being alone just won't cut it. I'll take the tears and the intense emotions, all of them, thank you very much!

And the dolls together, with Mother Nature and her wild hair in the background, along with my Spring Doll holding my felted bunnies...

How happy is the little Stone
~ Emily Dickinson

How happy is the little Stone
That rambles in the Road alone,
And doesn't care about Careers
And Exigencies never fears --
Whose Coat of elemental Brown
A passing Universe put on,
And independent as the Sun
Associates or glows alone,
Fulfilling absolute Decree
In casual simplicity --
