John Duncan 'Celtic Goddess'

Cross stitch Designer: Karen Dixon

Counted Cross Stitch Kit: Celtic Godess

In Celtic mythology, Aiofe (pronounced eefa) was the second wife of the Danaan god Lir. Lir had previously fathered four children by Aiofe's sister, but Aiofe herself was unable to conceive. She grew increasingly jealous of her husbands devotion and love for his children and resolved to destroy them. Ultimately, she could not kill them, and instead transformed them by magic into four swans.

When Lir discovered what Aiofe had done, he cast a spell on her and turned her into a demon of the air, whereupon she was never heard from again.

The design is worked on 28 count linen fabric with stranded cotton and Marlitt, Kreinik and Reflecta metallic threads. The worked area measures 10 x 6 ins (26 x 17cm). The counted cross stitch kit contains threads (floss), fabric, needle, chart and instructions. Or try our pattern pack leaving you free to vary the fabric material, count or even colour.
