The Month Sisters: October

I am excited about a new series I’m calling “The Month Sisters.” It is inspired by the Slavic folktale about the Month Brothers, twelve men representing the months of the year whose magic powers come to the aid of a poor mistreated girl. (I grew up with this version. My month people will be sisters instead of brothers.

This is October. She has a chrysanthemum hat (or is it her hair?) and brown eyes. Her orange dress is painted on, with an overlay of autumn leaves. She is made from a 2″ tall peg.
