Slavic Horoscope

So, we have a new Slavic Horoscope Sign – Beaver.

Beaver is a hardworkiing man, knows how to arrange his life, comfortable not only for him, but also for his loved ones. These people do not chase career heights, but despite the lack of aspiration, not bad succeed in life.

Beavers – singles, although for his family and children do a lot. They have a little friends, but Beavers value friendship and can help those who are in trouble. Usually these people are very rare to attract attention to themselves, although from time to time they like to give advice to others, which irritates loved ones. With age, beavers become even more withdrawn than in the active period of their lives, they love privacy, do not seek to communicate and travel.

For all Beavers, family, practical interests and material security come first, although they are rarely capable of intrigue to achieve their goal and someone to get around. They are silent, they rarely have a sense of humor, but friends appreciate their support and ability to come to help in any situation.

Slavic Horoscope – Cockchafer

Our new Zodiak sign from Slavic Horoscope series is a Cockchafer. A cockchafer is a type of large, flying beetle that can be quite noisy. The cockchafer is sometimes called a ‘doodle-bug’ or May bug, although it is, in fact, a beetle.

It is said, that no one has ever experienced such a dramatic change in their life as Cockchafer. When a worm digs in the ground and gnaws roots, it’s sure to be like this for life. When it turns into a puppet and freezes in great peace, it exclaims in the insight: “What a fool I used to be!”, implying that now it has finally understood how to live, now knows how to live, now will live only so …
But the time comes and the cocoon breaks, the young Beetle crawls out of the ground, spreads its wings. Maybugs more than anyone is tormented by the fact that you can’t explain to your children how they will live,  because they won’t believe you. In general, you can not explain to anyone how to live to be able to turn into the True-Wings.
In the work, Cockchafer easily reaches any height, if he is not taken from the easy path of his career more complex search for truth, philosophical or religious trails, the search for moral and ethical ways to the right life.

Dandelion Wine Cross Stitch Pattern

There is a new counted cross stitch pattern at our Etsy shop: Dandelion Wine. A picture, cross-stitched by this chart can be a reminder of a warm summer spent in a wonderful place with a loved one or good friends. To me, the title of this pattern reminds one of my favourite books “Dandelion Wine” by Ray Bradbury, who once wrote: “Don’t judge a book by its cover”. (Fahrenheit 451″). This quote has guided me all my life.
