As I may or may not have mentioned before I am, at times, an avid cross stitcher, opting for fantasy and nature based kits that speak to my magickal side. A lot of my card designs have also been cross stitch ones. I find it an incredibly relaxing pastime, like a complicated puzzle that is just so rewarding when it's finished. I'll get some pics of my flower fairy projects up soon. First I wanted to share this lovely kit, that I completed a couple of years ago, with you.
It was actually a competition prize - I don't usually enter magazine competitions etc, my psychic sense usually tells me when I'm going to win so I wait until then. The same thing is true of the lottery with me, when I feel that pull to play my numbers 9 times out of 10 I will win (only £10 mind you, but it's better than losing). Anyways, to cut a long story short I entered the giveaway for this beautiful celtic stag kit which came to my attention at a time when I was really working hard to reconnect with the male energies of the gods.
I managed to find where the kit came from too, it's designed by Sammy Brewer at Keridwen Crafts whose site is full of fantastic celtic designs for the cross stitching fan.
