  Poor things, I dragged them out of the box in which they were stuffed, and they both complained about the state of their hair.  The smaller one has lost her fairy her fairy wings and was quite dismayed that she is grounded for the moment.. 

I'm rather amazed that at some point I did have the stick to it ness that I required make these dolls as I have much less of that now LOL..

I know they would appreciate the buttons and the ribbons I need to add, but alas I am back to reading Tarot a great deal, Christmas is coming and I have jewelry to make, so they will be relegate back to obscurity after this brief adventure into the outside world.

Further comments on sewing

        The sewing machine is on its way back to being stored in the closet.  I hemmed my bedrooms curtains, a task that has been waiting for two years.  I mended two stuffed animals, my daughter's shirt, and patched a pair of pants.. 

And,  I made the one lowly Tarot bag in the picture.  It needs a lot of tweaking and is by no means up to my standards, but it is the first model.  The sewing experience was positive, and after the holidays I shall get the machine out again and work on bags for all my decks. I have a thousand ideas on decorations for the bags and will need to get some supplies as I think I will go with applique on some of them.

I am grateful for having a sewing machine.

I am grateful to have the skills to run it :)

I am grateful for my granddaughter's laughter, my lj friends, my easy life, and my great little farmhouse

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.
