Cadair Idris

This listing is for one hand embroidered needlepainting of Llyn Cau, the lake at Cadair Idris in Wales, made into a pin brooch. The needlepainting is inspired by a day in February hiking up to the lake at Cadair Idris, it was cold and the top was covered in snow but beautiful and otherworldly as anyone who’s ever seen the Welsh landscape can attest to. The mountain of Cadair Idris has a story to it; the top is supposed to look like a chair(cadair or cadar)and belonged to the giant Idris. It is said that whoever spends the night in Idris’ chair will wake up a lunatic, or a poet, or not at all..a very mystical place, even when you’re neither a poet nor a lunatic 😉
