What Card are you,,,

p align="center">

You are The High Priestess

Science, Wisdom, Knowledge, Education.

The High Priestess is the card of knowledge, instinctual, supernatural, secret knowledge. She holds scrolls of arcane information that she might, or might not reveal to you. The moon crown on her head as well as the crescent by her foot indicates her willingness to illuminate what you otherwise might not see, reveal the secrets you need to know. The High Priestess is also associated with the moon however and can also indicate change or fluxuation, particularily when it comes to your moods.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays....

Hello Blog world..
Sorry I have been absent, but the holidays and working really kept me busy..I have been knitting alot, mostly scarfs, and some hats, unforuantely I dont have any pictures to show because there were all presents. I have been reading some to I read a book called the Knitting Circle which comes out next month it was a advance copy from work and if you like Debbie MaComber you will like this one. Now I a reading a book called On a Highland Shore by Kathleen Givens, I have read good reviews of it so I thought I would read it. Well Santa was really good to me this year, I got a digital camera all my own...and a brand new Dell Computer which I am using right now..So I will be posting some pictures as soon as I get some. Well I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year..

I am jumping on the band wagon....

I have seen this post in alot of other blogs and thought I would join in on the 10,25,50..

The rules (as posted at are:1. Have fun reducing your stash.2. There is no time limit- people have different size projects they would like to work on.3. Thou shall not purchase any new patterns until 10, 25, or 50 projects have been stitched. Pattern size does not matter. 4. This challenge can also apply to knitting, beading, sewing and crocheting patterns.5. You can make some exemptions - I am not placing limitations on this due to commitments that people might already have. Remember, though, the goal of this challenge is to reduce stash so too many exemptions will sabotage these efforts.6. Gifts, gift cards, trades, RAKs and patterns bought with gift money are not a violation of this challenge. This also applies to purchasing patterns for gifts that give other people. Woohoo!7. Freebies count as part of your total and you can aquire them at any point.8. The offical start date of this challenge was Sept 1, 2006 since I have been posting about it for awhile and want to make sure the everyone's projects have been included.

Here is my list...only 25 now but will add more later.

1. LHN-The Bookshelf-WIP
