The spring equinox is one of the four great solar festivals of the year. Day and night are equal, poised and balanced, but about to tip over on the side of light. The spring equinox is sacred to dawn, youth, the morning star and the east. The Saxon goddess, Eostre (from whose name we get the direction East and the holiday Easter) is a dawn goddess, like Aurora and Eos. Just as the dawn is the time of new light, so the vernal equinox is the time of new life.
I had my own celebration of this new season. I stitched! For the first day of Spring I've chose a small ornament (some day I will stitch the whole sampler) from Birdsong II by the Prairie Schooler.
I was on the roll so after finishing the stitching part I'd made an actual ornament!
