So what’s new for February at my Etsy shop CrowsKnot?
Why it’s more embroidery, of course!
Since the month of February contains not one but *two* personal anniversaries for me, my newest products feature hearts – both elemental and of the Celtic knotwork variety.
First up, is the
A lovely hand-embroidered altar cloth featuring the four elements – Air, Fire, Water and Earth –
Elemental Hearts Altar Cloth – $15.00
*100% pre-shrunk cotton, in white, with hand-rolled double stitched finished edges.
*Measures approximately 15.5 by 15.5 inches square (39 by 39 cm)
As anyone who knows my affinity for the element of Fire
I was especially surprised to find that I most enjoyed embroidering the designs
for the elements of Air and Water
as conveying the color and movement of these two elements
turned out to be an unusual but welcome challenge for me.
As well, I decided to expand upon the original design by embroidering
Elemental Hearts Rune Bag – $10.00
*100% pre-shrunk cotton muslin
*Bag measures approximately 5.5 inches long and 4.0 inches wide, with an opening of 3.75 by 2.25 inches wide
*Bag closes by a sturdy double drawstring closure.
You might notice that the rune bag design is not an exact duplicate of the altar cloth as
my expansion of the design features my favorite representation of the element of Earth
– trees! –
and I was inspired to depict a tree morphing through the four seasons:
I was so inspired by this heart-tree imagery that I plan on featuring it on several future products
I’m creating for the shop as the wheel of the year
turns toward Spring and Beltane ❤
As for the Celtic knotwork
-another design that features heavily in my embroidery –
I spent the last few days embroidering a lovely heart knotwork design
using a lovely rainbow ombre poly/cotton thread Coats and Clark refers to as ‘Jewels’
I love how the bold, bright colors of this thread just *pop* against the background of lighter fabrics!
The finished project:
Celtic Heart Knot Altar Cloth – $15.00
*100% pre-shrunk cotton, in white, with finished edges
*Cloth measures approximately 18.5 by 18.5 inches square (46.7 cm)
I am so in love with these ombre threads that I have several more works in progress
featuring the Pagan pentacle
As well, keep your eye out for upcoming projects that feature one of my most popular designs involving
the Elder Futhark and Anglo Saxon runes:
