A new Challenge

My first Goddess piece for the 13 Goddesses in 13 Weeks challenge which began June 1st, here is the link for the challenge
You can join anytime until December 2016 and you can use any medium you choose, for my first I decided on embroidery using one of the basic goddess patterns.

My goddess is stitched on tone on tone white print cotton fabric embroidered with 2 strands of variegated embrodiery floss, the triqutra symbol is done with 2 strands of solid yellow floss.

I was going to stick with the suggested list of ideas and make a Baba Yaga goddess using embroidery and crayon tinting when I plug in my iron to set the waxy crayon it didn't heat so I pulled the plug on that idea for now and made my little Celtic triple goddess using the triquetra to represent not only the feminine qualities of maiden, mother, crone but also the 3 qualities of the Celt Goddess Bridgid when viewed as the triple goddess, those being Art, Healing and Metalsmithing.

I may not use embroidery as the medium for all 13 of my goddesses so please check back each week to see what I've come up with or check out one of my other blogs or facebook page, and please stop by the to see the beautiful Art there.
