Witchamaroo and Raggedy Scarecrow wish you a happy Halloween

Raggedy Scarecrow puppet–about 2 feet tall–by yours truly

Happy Halloween everyone!  My fellow teacher at the Lincoln Square campus of the Chicago Waldorf School and I decided to celebrate together–at least part of the morning.  She did some circle songs and rhymes and I told a puppet story.  This one was an adaptation of Suzanne Down‘s story, “How Witchamaroo became the Pocket Witch” from her first book of Autumn Tales (currently out of print, but I just ordered the second one).

My guess is that this is the first scarecrow made out of Anna Maria Horner fabric–mostly leftovers from the quilt I made for my daughter–plus a needle felted head and felted sweater for the hat, mittens and boots.

And this is Witchamaroo (about 6″ tall)  I made her a long time ago, but today was her first public appearance

Well, that’s it for today.

Thanks for stopping by!

I am a writer, handworker, artist and teacher (a WHAT!), and a mom of two beautiful daughters who are amazingly 17 and 21. I am working on getting my first book, a fantasy novel for young people, published and am busy spinning on my new spinning wheel. I have been a Waldorf early childhood teacher for 10 years now, and before that, I was a lawyer. Teaching is much more fun.
