Dave sent over the link to this design.  As I was looking at it, I was struck by how appropriate it was as a symbol for one whom walks our path.  I think that it would make an awesome tattoo design.  I'm actually considering this option myself.  ;)

Suilad Ellenar,
This is pretty cool.  I've been wanting to get inked for years, it comes down to money and the fact that I keep changing my mind about what I want...Thanks for posting it.

Same here.  However, I believe that my time is coming soon, as I am totally leaning toward the Celtic Compass Rose.  (I always said that if I got a tattoo, it would be something that carries resonance with my most intimate self.)  What's also cool is that this design would be great for jewelry, or as a sewing pattern for an altar cloth graphic.

Oooh...
Altar cloth graphic...Eruannlass' embroidery blood just got pumping with that statement...time to invest in a fabric marker pen...or a washable marker at least...

You don't need to invest in anything really. If you are working on dark fabric, an old sliver of soap makes a nice line and washes out.  On light fabrics, if you have some of the colored soaps, sometimes those soaps will leave enough of a mark to see. If you handle the fabric a lot where you are working, the soap can wear away though. This tip works better for sewing than long, complex embroidery projects.

That's a good tip, Niennildi.  Hannon le.  Since the cloth will get handled a lot, I might ghost in the lines with a pencil and go over it with the soap, so that I can see the design better...
