Been working on these this week, and they're turning out very nicely. I use 100% cotton size 10 thread, crocheted with a steal hook. It's the same thread used for doilies. I suppose the could also be used for a small altar, especially the elemental one!

This one is the Zodiac cloth that I've got in progress right now. I'm crocheting it in segments, and then will join with either white or pale purple. Probably pale purple, since Cancer is white, and I haven't yet used the pale purple in it.

This one is the Elemental casting cloth, for use with my elemental divination system that I'm using. It could also be used with cards, runes, sticks, whatever. Of course you've got Air, Fire, Water, and Earth, in Yellow, Red, Blue, and Green. I also stitched it so that it's got three circles, which could be used as divisions of Past, Present, Future or Mind, Body, Spirit or Being, Thinking, Doing, or any other combination of three that you can think of.

And I'm having a bugger of a time getting the picture of the rune cloth with a full rune cast on it to upload, but I'm gonna keep trying!

ETA: FINALLY got the rune cloth to upload!

It's got three circular divisions, and it's showing with a full cast on it.

And this is the rune cloth folded to become a pouch for the runes.

Those are brilliant!
I like the originality of them too! Is the divination system your own? :)

Yup. The elemental and astrological systems are ones that I'm currently working on :)
