Tarot card review

Okay so awhile back I got the Madame Endora's fortune cards. I wanted to work with them a little before jumping right in and writing about them . So upon opening the box which holds 48 cards you will see a mix of fairies, Celtic, and Egyptian style cards which for me it has a little of everything I like!

Normally I never do any of the spreads in that are in the book, I go by the 3 card spread (I know I'm lazy!) but there is one called the seekers fan (shown below) which I found interesting and so I use that for this deck.

Once turned over to read the spread looks like this

What I love most about the cards is that they can be read one of two ways from the book which gives more detail about the card's meaning or you can just read the bottom of the card for a quick reading which would give you good cause to meditate on. This deck is in my top 5 favorites and I would recommend to anyone .

Okay so remember the Bakersfield shawl? well since it didn't turn out they way I had hoped and after blocking it twice the yarn still curled up so I figured I had two choices I could

A) throw it out


B) try to unravel it and save the yarn to make something else

As you can see the yarn wound back up with out any trouble. Now to figure out what I am going to do with it ! Anyone have any ideas?

I like the colors of the yarn. Kind of looks like a Gryffindor Colorway! :D As to the cards...they're gorgeous. Maybe I should think about blogging soon. I'm so lazy. Ugh. It's ridiculous.

I have been wanting to have my palm or cards read for a long time now those cards are pretty.

I like the color of the yarn maybe a shawl or a pair or ankle socks.

Those cards are very pretty! I keep thinking I want a set but something keeps taking the money from my pocket to get them.

The yarn looks like a nice pair of socks to me, but then I have socks on the brain today!

The colors in that yarn are beautiful! I'd probably knit socks with it. :D
