While I was doing some goddess research for an upcoming project I came across Brigids Grove website which this link will take you to http://www.brigidsgrove.com/ . While browsing the site I came across an interesting activity offered in the Creative Spirit Circle, How to create a Calamoondala. I am eager to get started and decided to try my hand at making mine in hand embroidery, I'm not sure how this will work out but I am going to use the templates offered so I can try my hand using fabric and embroidery floss.
Here is a look at the first Calamoondala I will embroider, I am using the stitch and wash away product to make things a bit neater.

If you love goddess goods check out the Etsy shop https://www.etsy.com/shop/BrigidsGrove the pieces are just beautiful.
I plan to post my progress on both pieces weekly as time allows. With this being the holiday season and having several online retail shops that may not always be possible but I will make the effort.
