Ostara/Equinox drawings

I have made 2 ostara/spring equinox drawings, one of them a frame for maybe a Book Of Shadows and one of a sun gazing hare.

As the hare is more of lunar symbol, I have not seen any drawings of sun gazing hares before, but plenty of moon gazing ones.
Not that it was something I was thinking about when I made the drawing, it just ended up that way, as the sun is more symbolic of spring in my mind.

But this is how they ended up, hope you enjoy :)

My new Book Of Shadows

So my dear husband gave me a new Book Of Shadows for yule, it's a real beauty.

I have made my very first entry in it, it was really hard to start. I did not want to ruin anything, but it turned out okay.
I'm not totally satisfied with it, but it looks okay.

It is a sabbat wheel, with an Ouroboros snake symbol.
It is hand drawn with pen and watercolours.

My first set of runes

So I have made my first set of runes, and they actually turned out well.

I made them out of white clay, I pressed the rune symbol into the clay and glazed the symbol itself with a light green paint-on glaze.
The rest of the clay is without glaze and has a nice rough feel to it.

I plan on making more sets, I have already started another set of white clay ones, these will have another colour of glaze, but I have not decided what colour yet. Maybe blue, maybe red.
There is a set in red clay on the drawing board, with black or brown glazing.

For this set there is only one thing left to do, make a nice bag.
I have already gotten the fabric for it, a nice dark green wool, that will be lined with a soft white linen.
Maybe I will do some embroidery on the bag, but I have not figured out what motif yet.
