For a long time, people believed that four-leaf clover is a symbol of luck, a powerful natural guardian.
The ancient Celts, for example, gave the four-leaf clover the properties of a reliable defender. They took the guardian with them as they set out on the road. Bundles of dried plants were laid out at home to attract prosperity and deter evil spirits.
For the Druids, the four-leaf clover was a symbol of the universe. Each of its blades was the embodiment of earth, water, air and fire.
The glorious reputation of the plant remains to this day. Tha amulet in the form of a happy leaf can become a reliable helper and protector, no matter what shape you use it in – as a jewellery piece, tattoo or embroidery on your clothes. The main thing is to believe that it will bring you luck. That’s why I decided to make a garland of lucky clovers, just let them bring happiness to your home.
A new cross stitch chart at our shop presents Bohemian Waxwings.
These birds are social birds that form large, compact, and noisy groups-sometimes in the thousands – as they scour the landscape looking for fruit during the nonbreeding season. They dangle on flimsy branches to reach fruit or perch side by side in fruiting trees. Bohemian Waxwings live in Northern forests of Eurasia, Canada and Alaska.
We continue our Slavic Horoscope cross stitch patterns. Today I’d like to present you Toad sign for people who was born 10/04 – 10/05. There is some onteresting facts about this people.
A toad is perhaps the most amazing animal, for it can live both on water and under water, as well as on shore. The toad lives even in the forest on trees. This amazing adaptability gives a man born in the period of Toad, the opportunity to work on the simplest jobs, for example, in the field or in the forest as lumberjack, as well as occupy the highest positions in the state, lead the troops, to be famous in music, literature, art, science. Toads are less likely to be disappointed than others, because they are good everywhere, but it has another side: Toads everywhere feel so cozy that they rarely seek somewhere else. The Toad Man can, for example, work as a gardener all his life, knowing very well that he could, if he tried a little more, become a manager, or even king in this state. Toads are appreciated for their souls, which are covered with unsightly skins, but Toads themselves are reluctant to converge with people, because the soul is not a garment, it has to be seen! So there is the pattern of this unusial animal.
The 12th part of this Sal is completed, now only boarder left 🙂 Two pictures to your attention: first one without back stitch and the second one with back stitch and Frebch knots. I know, they are not ideal, but they are.

Today I’m proud to present you my new design – Best Mum with Marigold finished and framed in a hoop picture, that can be used instead of a greeting card. Such work can be wal hanging decoration or be placed on the desk in the office and it will constantly remind of children’s love. Bright and gentle at the same time it will decorate any interior. It’s hard for me to decide whether I like it more – postcards with this design or a framed picture like this. And what do you think about it?
The Marigold pattern was created by Debra Page, you can find it in Cross Stitch Favourites Spring 2015 magazine. I’d like to add, that all my flowers postcards are created by Debora’s design “Seasonal Flowers” and I’m going to stitch them all. So far I’ve done only Marigold, Daffodils, Carnation, Lilly of Valley and Rose, so 7 more have to be done and I’d like to say that I’m not tired of them yet and I don’t feel it’s time to put them off. To sum it up, I can cross stitch them day and night, so perfect their design is.
