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.

People born as Snails by Slavic Horoscope have a lot of imagination, creativity and dreaming, but in some cases, they do not have enough intelligence and practicality to realize their plans. Snails are characterized by soft character, vulnerability and slowness,  they do not like to rush into action and rarely show determination and grip. They are charming, able to dispose of others and are often lucky in love. Snails strive for a perfect relationship, but in some cases, they take someone else’s words and actions too close to heart, avoiding decisive action.

The First Spring Flowers Cross Stitch Pattern

Spring is in the air, so we have a new first spring flowers char – Scilla Siberica, or Siberian Squill, or Wood Squill pattern. This beautiful blue flower is native to southwestern Russia, the Caucasus, and Turkey. I think, that this cross-stitched flower will bring spring mood to your house at any time of year, but especially in winter, it will remind you that spring is just around the corner.
