Rune Kenaz – the Torch (inner strength)

How about some rune magic? Here is the first cross stitch pattern in the norse runic series. Today’s rune is Kenaz (the Torch) – one of the Fire Runes, the symbol of the fire that turns clay into ceramics and darkness into light.

Kenaz is good for artists, musicians, and scientists. To emphasize the strength of the rune there are oak leaves and acorns above it.

Mayan lizard cushion chart

This pattern for making a cross-stitch cushion was heavily inspired by Mayan culture. An ethnic-styled lizard curles over the Mayan symbol for water (bottom right). It is the first in the Mayan-series cushions I designed and I even cross-stiched this one in a real cushion (photo inside!).

Celtic ornament cushion chart

Yet another pattern for cross-stitching a cushion. and this time I used a celtic ornament for inspiration (yes, I’m quite into that stuff 🙂 ). I would not recommens this pattern for beginners because it is very big (a lot of stitches) and you may lose your patience in the middle of your work.
