Raidho rune 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.

Today’s freebie will be another pattern in the runic series. Many thanks to Maria for stimulating me to return to that (unfinished) work through comments 🙂

This time the runes chose to show me Algiz – quite a mystic rune, because, as far as Wikipedia goes, people are nor sure of its name or true meaning, But we will settle for common name of Algiz, that stands for Elk.

Rune Laguz (water, intuition) cross stitch chart

The primary meaning of Laguz is water. Water was very controversial for the Vikings being very dangerous yet giving life (irrigation and fish). That is why Laguz often means life, birth and new beginnings.

Stitch count: 39 x 46 stitches, 9 colors

Deeper meaning of Laguz is the Flow, artistic inspiration, intuition and unconscious wisdom. This rune with its ability of multiplying creation powers can make a good present for any creative person. But you should be very careful with Laguz (as well as with any other rune), because it also means dark and hidden sides of your subconsciousness. Don’t get carried away with your imagination!

Laguz is also said to be a very feminine rune. It gives the woman a strength to get through any obstacles in life.

If you got to this page while randomly browsing the Web, than maybe Laguz is trying to tell you that you should relax and go with the flow of your life.

I chose a weeping willow as a symbolic tree for this pattern, because it grows only near water and is often associated with a woman.

Inspired by all beautiful samplers on Pinterest: “Happy Easter” sampler (maybe not exactly a sampler, but something very similar) with easter eggs, chickens and tulips. I made it in red, but it can be embroidered with any color you like.

I never did samplers before, this one is the very first and I hope you will like it!

Rune Isa (ice) cross stitch chart

One more rune for all Norse-loving cross stitchers and the fifth rune in my Elder Futhark runic series. Last time I wrote a little about how I choose runes for the next pattern, so today I only want to point out that every time I draw a rune it happens to be just the right rune for my today’s mood and/or situation.

So today it is Isa – the Ice, the simplest rune of Norse alphabet. This is the rune of stability and stagnation, but mostly (and what is more important) – the symbol for the potential underneath the seemingly sound surface (like living water under thick winter ice). So it means not only the period of a standstill, but also the progress you will make after it. The second meaning of Isa is clarity. When you’ve come to a dead-end, try to clarify your mind, strip everything needless and distracting and look at your goals once again.

Easter eggs cross stitch pattern

Would you believe if I told you that I totally forgot about upcoming Easter? Well, so I did, and only got suspicious with the sudden increase of the amount of people searching for Easter patterns 🙂 So here is a little something with Easter eggs and flowers (based on an image from the Web).

Did you know? In software development an Easter egg is a hidden message, often a inside joke. Even some versions of Microsoft Office have Easter eggs in them! Удивительно, но за празднованием всех весенних праздников (не исключая моего любимого – сегодняшнего Дня Кошки) я совершенно забыла про то, что уже довольно скоро наступит Пасха. На смутные подозрения меня навело только внезапно увеличившееся число посетителей блога, ищущих пасхальные схемы для вышивки 🙂

А знаете ли вы, что в программном обеспечении “пасхальными яйцами” называется спрятанная (но достижимая) незадокументированная особенность программы (шутка, ссылка на веб-страницу или мини-игра)? Говорят, что название пришло из детской игры, в которой участники должны найти как можно больше спрятанных пасхальных яиц.
