The wheel of the year project, the neverending project, progresses. I have details left to do for Imbolg, Lammas, and Beltaine. I could easily embellish this forever adding beads and other little details. Initially I set out to get each wheel piece to the point where I could call it good enough. But every time I add something it just gets better. Funny how that works with embroidery… So who knows how this will progress or how long it will take.
This is easily a simple chart of correspondences. Each section has an animal and a plant and the colors match the time of year as well. This is the piece that got me a yet to be scheduled appearance at a local Outer Grove to discuss art and magic and connection.
Here is a diagram of the proposed layout. Creme areas on a black background. Elements in each corner, design not drawn yet. Pentagram in the center. If I have the time or am inclined and grabbing that much fabric in my hand doesn’t knock my thumb out of socket (happens to me when I have a large bit of fabric to hold for embroidery, a hoop would probably help), I will add vines around the outer edge of the wheel and on the spokes.
Imbolg (lambs need faces)
Beltaine (frog needs an insect to eat)
Lammas (goose needs details including a face)
