A small and simple pattern for all coffee-lovers all over the world. Both the kettle and the cup on this chart are made in soft and warm brown-and-beige colors (also with coffee in mind!).
Due to limited amount of colors and small size, this is a good piece for beginners.

I picked a hard rune today, and my first unconscious desire was to throw it back in the sack again and pick another one. But then again, if it came out, then I need to learn something from it.
Rune Nauthiz: the Need
Nauthiz is a sign that something goes not exactly right in your life. It is the imbalance between what you want and what you get. Being a fire rune, it is quite strong, thus symbolizing the burning pressure and desire for change. Sometimes it is compared to spindle that generates fire by friction.

Perthro, the dice cup.
This rune symbolizes the dice, or more broadly – destiny, something that awaits you. Dice were used for fortune-telling (as well as today). It has an amount of uncertainty, because you never know how lucky the draw will be.
Perthro is very controversial and is sometimes interpreted as a woman’s womb, that also holds a lot of mystery in itself. It is said to enhance psychic abilities and sexuality.
Anyway, if you came across that rune by accident – expect more mysteries happening 🙂
Stitch count (Perthro pattern is bigger than the other runic charts because the name of the rune is longer): 40 x 49 stitches, 7 colors

Gebo, the gift
The act of giving is a wonder for two: the one who gives and the ones, who accepts the gift. Gebo can symbolize both sides of the exchange. It is a rune for relationships and for meatings, a good symbol for anyone who has to work with people.
Being a rune of connection, Gebo also symbolizes love and marriage (so it can make a fair wedding gift). Gebo is a great good-luck charm for strengthening relationships.
If you came on this page while randomly browsing the Web, expect Gebo to bring you new connections with people.
Stitch count: 36 x 49 stitches, 7 colors

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.

Othala, one of the last runes in the Futark and the rune of homeland and legacy is the rune for today and the fourth rune in Quaternion Creations Runic series. As always, it is made into a small and simple cross-stich design that can make a nice decoration or a special gift.
Stitch count: 36w x 49h, 7 colors
Curious how I choose the runes for making my designs? Continue reading “Othala, the property – rune cross stitch pattern”
Today I will continue the series of inspirational runic cross stitch patterns (see Fehu rune and Kenaz rune patterns).
The Tiwaz rune has several symbolic meanings, among them justice, self-sacrifice and altruism. It is the rune of the god Tyr, who is most known for giving his name to Tuesday (‘Týr’s day’). In Norse mythology, Týr sacrifices his arm to the monstrous wolf Fenrir, who bites off his limb while the gods bind the animal.
This small pattern is easy to stitch even if you are a beginner.
Stitch count: 36W x 49H

The second rune in runic cross stitch patterns series is Fehu, or the Cattle, the symbol of wealth and prosperity. This rune is the first Futhark rune and also its last one. In a wider sense Fehu can also mean emotional gain or a better reputation.
Fehu can protect your valuable things and feelings, grant wealth and fulfill you wishes, but you have to be responsible and be ready to pay the price of your dreams (the mystical Price is the second meaning of Fehu). In the pattern for the rune I made apple leaves and fruits in the upper corners as a farther symbol of prosperity.

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.
