Ostara blessings to you all.
Eostre the Saxon version of the Germanic goddess Ostara. Her feast day is held on the full moon following the vernal equinox, one popular legend is that Eostre found a bird, wounded, on the ground late in winter. To save its life, she transformed it into a hare. But "the transformation was not a complete one. The bird took the appearance of a hare but retained the ability to lay eggs...the hare would decorate these eggs and leave them as gifts to Eostre.
I finally managed to get hold of some twigs today for my Ostara table decoration. Every year I plan to do this (in the past for Easter) but have failed or forgotten until it's too late. But this year I made a plan and now I have a lovely table tree covered in pretty painted eggs and paper butterflies.
I had made a really good start on hooking a thank you blanket for a lovely friend of mine who did me an amazing favour last month. However I found this blog last night and fell in love with these little flowers! aren't they just so sweet? and what a wonderful way to use up left over wool from other projects. Once you have the idea they are really quick to make.Blessed Be
