This year we have a very unusual winter – there is still warm and there aren’t snow here. It is said that there will be no more winter this year, so we thought that it is high time to welcome the spring. Thus we present to you first spring flowers – snowdrops.
I am excited to present you a new counted cross stich pattern at our shop and this is a Grasshopper!
In a garden, there lived an ant and a grasshopper who were very good friends. It was springtime and the grasshopper was having a lot of fun playing, singing, and dancing in the sun. But the ant was hardworking. It was collecting food grains and storing them in its house. The grasshopper did not understand why the ant was doing so and said, “Hey,’ Ant! Why don’t you come outside and play with me?” The ant replied, “I cannot. I am storing food for the winter when there won’t be anything to eat!” The grasshopper only laughed at the ant and said, “Why are you worrying now? There is plenty of food!” and contin¬ued to play, while the ant worked hard. When winter came, the grasshopper did not find a single grain of food to eat. It began to starve and feel very weak. The grasshopper saw how the hardworking ant had plenty of food to eat and realised its foolishness. (short story)
In Slavic Horoscope Grasshopper – more than anyone does not like to show fatigue, defeat, misfortune. He always sings, he always spreads his wings, flatter himself in the sun. People smile as they look at Grasshoppers, it’s just lying on the grass in the sun. The Grasshopper is very easy to climb, and although the heart trembles with fear of each jump, it still jumps, melts its wings and flies, trembling with fear and delight. In a new place may be waiting for large terrible animals, there may be predatory spiders, but there may be a beautiful meadow with juicy grass, sweet berries and … …other beautiful Grasshoppers, Beetles, Butterflies!
Almost the biggest coward in the world, Grasshopper admits it only to the closest, and for all others, it is a carefree and cheerful creature, which everything is given easily, effortlessly, which easily converges with all creatures in the world, as Grasshoppers, and all.
The Grasshopper is unhurried in the sense that he is unhurried, he grabs one thing and another. He often throws what he has started, but for others, it is surprising that he is able to do much, even often more than others, diligent. And the secret is that the Grasshopper, having thrown a lot of things at halfway, to half of them still comes back and, ashamed of his cowardice, finishes quickly and successfully. And if we take into account that the Grasshopper captures everything quickly, we can say that it was created on a nice day and in good spirits.
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 have some small birds cross stitch patterns, here I’d like to present you new – House Sparrow and Common Linnet.
House Sparrows live across many different regions of the world. Humans have not domesticated House Sparrows in any way. So, House Sparrows do not make good pets. Humans have attempted to keep them as pets, but they do not thrive in a household setting. Additionally, they are not the most colorful of birds, and their song is not particularly catchy or melodic.
Common Linnets were popular cage birds during the 19th century. Now they can be found in Europe, West Asia, and North-West Africa. Eastern and northern populations of Common Linnets migrate to the south during the autumn. These birds produce melodic, pleasant songs that consist of fast trills and twitters.
The scientific name of common linnet, “Carduelis Cannabina”, refers to the feeding habits of this bird and its affection for hemp (variety of cannabis). The common name “Linnet” refers to a fondness for flaxseed, that is used in the manufacture of linen.
In any case, both birds can be observed in my country, and you can cross-stitch them for yourself or as a gift for a bird lover 🙂 They are beautiful, aren’t they?
