Raven Counted Cross Stitch Pattern

When we were in London in September, we planned to visit the Tower of London and we knew that no trip to the Tower would be complete without a sighting of a raven, which is the symbol of Monarchy, tradition, and history. “If the Tower of London ravens are lost or fly away, the Crown will fall and Britain with it.”Or so the legend goes! The ravens were there!

Ravens are one of the smartest animals, which sometimes associated with death and dark omen. Edgar Allan Poe knew what he was doing when he used the raven instead of some other bird to croak out “nevermore” in his famous poem. But the real bird is somewhat of a mystery. Cultures from Tibet to Greece have seen the raven as a messenger for the gods. Celtic goddesses of warfare often took the form of ravens during battles. The Viking god, Odin, had two ravens, which flew around the world every day and reported back to Odin every night about what they saw – more interesting facts about this bird you can read here

It is said, that people born in the month of Raven find strenth in solitude and don’t like the hustle and bustle. They can also easily find the right solution to any problem because of developed powerful intuition. As Ravens, they are always calm and confident, because these birds are associated with wisdom and insight knowledge. What is your Zodiac sight? Maybe Raven? Or Wolverine? We are going to create more Zodiac sights by Slavic Horoscope, so the theme is continued.

Snowflakes

We got up this morning and it turned out to be autumn. Outside the window, there was a cloudy sky, rain and a temperature of 17С. I’m not complaining about this weather, because I can’t stand the heat, which has been attacking us lately, but still autumn always comes so unexpectedly … 🎋🍃🍂🍁However, there is another moment – you have to start preparing for Christmas, so today in our shop appear snowflakes. Crocheted of 100% cotton they are beautiful decorations for a Christmas tree. Snowflakes are stiffened and can decorate a fireplace or be an addition to gifts also. In general, how to use them is a matter of your imagination. For me, knitting snowflakes always means the end of summer and the approaching winter.❄️☃️❄️
