Free download from the store, see link below:
Only two runes to go, would you believe that?
Gradually moving forward with the runic alphabet. With today’s Eihwaz done, I have only three runes to go: Sowilo, Ingwaz, and Dagaz. That means that all other runes are alreasy available for download in the blog archives!
Anyway, the freebie today is Eihwaz.

Please note, that this pattern is a little bit (two stitches) wider than most of the runic patterns of the same design. I had to make it like this because the rune’s neame is longer 🙂
The symbolic tree for Berkana on the pattern is pomegranate.
Remember, I promised to complete the whole runic series by the end of summer? I hope you don’t remember that vow, because I’m seriously out of schedule with six more runes to go, and the summer is almost over. But still, as I just wrote, only six more runes to go: that means that 18 runes are adapted into patterns already, and that’s a lot!
Today I made (very true to season!) Jera rune.

While most of the sources I check to know the meaning of runes rarely agree with each other (it is very funny how websites in English and websites in Russian write very differently about the same runes), all of these sources agree that Wunjo is the rune of happiness and joy. So I hope you will find joy in stitching it!

One more rune and one step closer to completing the runic series. The list of runes to adapt is getting smaller and I still have time to finish every pattern this summer, as promised 🙂
Today’s rune is Uruz.

You know what? I suddenly remembered, that I promised to complete the Runic patterns series by the end of the summer. And it seems that time is running out quicklier, than I could have expected. So, for now it is fifteen runes completed and nine runes to go. 🙂
And today my wonderful runic sack presented me with the Mannaz.

Starting the last ten uncovered previously by my patterns Nordic runes, is Ansuz – the rune of Odin, the rune of power and leadership.
Ansuz in the A of the Nordic runic alphabet, and stands for Odin, the ancestral god, who is said to give first humans the gifts of life and intelligence (this is why Ansuz is sometimes called Odin’s breath). This is the rune of wisdom, that governs our abilities to put things in order and name them. And because according to many ancient myths knowing the true name of something or someone gives us power over this thing or person, Ansuz is also a rune of great power. But always remember, that with great power comes great responsibility 😉

First of all I want to thank all of my readers, who responded to the recent poll about your favourite cross stitch motifs. It seems for now, that most of you love to cross stitch flowers 🙂 Oh, I love them too! so on the coming week I promise to make a flower freebie for you.
Meanwhile today’s free patterns is once again a Norse rune.

Pattern size: 36w X 49h stitches, 7 colors
Last rune made a great milestone: half of all Elder Futark runes were completed into cross stitch patterns. So, for now. you can find patterns Fehu, Thurisaz, Kenaz, Gebo, Hagalaz, Nauthiz, Isa, Perthro, Algiz, Tiwaz, Laguz and Othala. And today I’m starting the second half, and I make a pinky promise to you to complete the whole series before this autumn. It is going to be a great quest! And, speaking of quests, today’s pick is
Raidho rune free cross stitch pattern
Raidho is one of the runes that all readers agree on: it’s primary meaning is the journey, and that may mean both physical travels (that makes Raidho a traveller’s good luck charm) and metaphorical quests of our lives. It is an evolution in motion, a rule to move if we want to change and become a better person. It is also a talisman that helps to see your path clearly and not get distracted by obstacles.
