Meet Aeslin, the Little Irish Witch of Vision. Aeslin is trying to get her woodland treasures home so she can whip up one of her potions. Unfortunately for her, Aeslin's critters must be aware of her intentions as they attemp to scram out of her basket.
Aeslin is a 15" soft sculptured doll of my own creations. She can be hung from the loop on her back or sitting pretty on a shelf.
Aeslin's facial features are are needle sculpted and her mouth and eyes are hand painted. She holds a hand painted paper mache' basket in her hand that contains a spider and a frog that were hand sculpted with paperclay.
Aeslin's hat is black felt with some adornments of dyed cheese cloth and sweet annie. Her boots are hand painted and the laces are stitched. Her bloomers and under dress are of a flannel homespun. Her black coat has a hand painted star design to add to her mystical witchiness. Aeslin's hair is sheep wool I purchased on a trip to Ohio.

8" hand painted reversible candle mat. Flip it over when the seasons change.
Can even be used as a mouse pad in the office area.
I use the same heavy weight canvas that I use for my floor cloths and prepare and finish so they are just as durable.

This hand painted table runner is 50"X15". A nice stack of pumpkins is painted on both ends and framed by vines of bittersweet. I start by pre-shrinking the canvas and machine stitching a 1" hem. After the design is done the table runner is protected with 3 coats of polyurethane on both sides.
A great way to decorate your table, breakfast bar or even your coffee table.
