Weekly thingy and Seven of Wands/Rapunzel

It’s kind of dumb that I keep calling these weekly thingies when at the moment I’m only managing to post once a week, but it gives me a template to fill so I guess we’ll stick with it for now.

Rapunzel! Specifically poor betrayed Rapunzel, hair chopped off, cast out by her adopted mother/captor into the desert, pregnant and searching for her beloved. The seven of wands is a rough card.

Also it is definitely stretching me figuring out how to work the wands into all these cards – not sure if pentacles will be much much worse or actually a little bit easier.


Places to buy stuff!

Did I miss something?  I think that’s everything.


What’s making me happy this week:

  • My side project of blackwork alphabet trim is done! Or at least the blackwork is. I need to wash it, back it with a fusible just to give a little extra insurance for me buried thread ends, then actually make the skirt it’s going in to. But also I’m feeling a little chary of spending excess money right this second between new battery for car, 4 new tires for car, and car insurance bill all within a few weeks of each other. Soooooo unnecessary fabric buying is back burnered for now, will be back on my plate maybe next month and then I’ll try to give y’all a break from Tarot with process pictures. For now I’ve switched to starting back on some gift-related lace making since I already own most of what I need for that and Chanukah is gradually on its way.

    I’m smack in the middle of viewing videos of current Penland instructors presenting their own work (infinitely more scintillating than I’m making it sound), and I just had to stop for a minute because there would be a disturbance in the force if you never had a chance to know Michael Ezzel (at 0.0) and Holly Chastain (at 20.0):

    If I had a Gatesian fortune, I would invest a smidgen in bankrolling a two week art retreat just to get the three of you together in one place. The synergy!
