Plain Jane Knits Up A Storm

A few musings about my needlecraft hobbies - knitting, crocheting, quilting, & cross-stitch along with my other love, genealogy. While growing up, I used to HATE the term "Plain Jane", but when it comes to knitting & crocheting, I've realized that I really *am* a Plain Jane in that I don't use fancy yarns.

Another Quiz

I spotted this one on the blog of my friend Sallee's blog. Not so amazingly, we come up with the same card - maybe because we're sisters despite different DNA??

You are The Empress

Beauty, happiness, pleasure, success, luxury, dissipation.

The Empress is associated with Venus, the feminine planet, so it represents,
beauty, charm, pleasure, luxury, and delight. You may be good at home
decorating, art or anything to do with making things beautiful.

The Empress is a creator, be it creation of life, of romance, of art or business. While the Magician is the primal spark, the idea made real, and the High Priestess is the one who gives the idea a form, the Empress is the womb where it gestates and grows till it is ready to be born. This is why her symbol is Venus, goddess of beautiful things as well as love. Even so, the Empress is more Demeter, goddess of abundance, then sensual Venus. She is the giver of Earthly gifts, yet at the same time, she can, in anger withhold, as Demeter did when her daughter, Persephone, was kidnapped. In fury and grief, she kept the Earth barren till her child was returned to her.

What Tarot Card are You?
Take the Test to Find Out.

Ok, I'm not so sure about that "dissipation" label as I really don't think it fits and the "luxury" is a little off too in that our house is anything but luxurious - can you say "Early Salvation Army"? "Happiness" is something that I aspire to after "Health" & before "Enough money to keep the wolf from the door." IMHO, those three things are all I need as long as I have needles & yarn (or fabric & thread)..

On the knitting front, I've been working on hats to match the 6 or 7 scarves I brought home Monday after the knitting class. I have most of them done and will have a number of sets to turn in tomorrow - the hats go very quickly when someone else has already made the scarf. The only problem is trying to match the scarf yarns with ones that will at least coordinate. Fortunately, using the Rainbow Dreams for the "windows" in the stained glass design, I can usually manage to find something that will match and not be glaringly off-key. I'll try to get photos before I turn them in tomorrow.
