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.

 

 

Shop Update

Hurray! We’ve just made 250 sales (the last order is from the USA, Illinois). We are grateful to our customers and supporters. Our shop #StittchesandQuills is run by a mother daughter duet who love crafting. The shop is based in the UK, but all the items are made and shipped from Poland. We both cannot stop thinking up of new items to make. The shop is a motivational push that allows us to transform these abstract ideas into real things, which we can then share with you!

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.
