Housewife's Tarot and Vinaigrette

I found The Housewife's Tarot at Anahata Katkin's blog. Have you seen this one, DebR?

Erin asked Mila (3) what she wanted to be for Halloween. The response: a bottle of vinegar. That's my girl!

And what doe she want to be when she grows up? The Queen of the Monsters! I'm tellin' ya': the apple doesn't fall far from the tree!

I've been trying out a very simple paper piecing pattern. "Oh," as Dylan Thomas said, "easy for Leonardo!" I'm not so good at reversal. My first attempt took quite a few tries and needs a border to enlarge it from a 4" square. I'm going to try a few more, but think I might go to Kinko's and have the pattern enlarged a bit.

I'm working on The Wyvern Mystery, my final book for the R.I.P. challenge - wrote about it here - and have a long list of possibilities to try to track down at the library before I go to Amazon. I know I'm going to have to order The Woman in Black: A Ghost Story by Susan Hill. But should be able to pick up at least one Wilkie Collins at the library and maybe The Thirteenth Tale. I'm going to have to check my list for some of the others I've jotted down.


  1. Interesting. I want to see a picture of this costume.

  2. Rian, I'd love to see the costume,too, but I imagine Erin will be able to talk her out of the bottle of vinegar. :)

  3. Yep, I have that one! It's really cool (and surprisingly quite useable for readings).

  4. :) Shoulda' known you would have them, Deb.


Good to hear from you!
