Egyptian Eyes Cross Stitch Chart

August 25, 2017

I can’t tell you the last time I sat down to stitch or even craft.  Had the idea for some gifts today but couldn’t find a chart that I liked, so I designed one.  This chart is free to use.  Do not kit, do not mass produce.  It is for private use only.

The right eye is typically called the Eye of Ra and the left the Eye of Horus.  For an understanding of the symbolism see here.

Deck Interview: Sun and Moon Tarot

March 23, 2017

I bought this deck last Saturday because I couldn’t get it out of my head.  I don’t need another deck, I thought.  I rarely use all that I have as it is.  Bought it anyway.  My first impression is that it is a very loving deck.  The purpose of the interview is for me to figure out what to do with it.
