Order From Chaos

I started spinning a cord to make a necklace for my sister-in-law.

Usually these go fairly smoothly for me. This cord became so tangled that I had to cut the whole mess off and start fresh. When the threads began to tangle the second time I tied them all up.

My sister-in-law is always starting things she'll never finish. She creates many problems for herself. I started thinking of a garden, over-grown and weed choked. I thought about how much work it takes to reclaim a garden gone to seed, but it actually takes very little effort to keep a garden maintained.

I finally got a good cord of it, but there were times when the threads clung stubbornly to each other. It makes me wonder what's going to happen when I spin the second cord required for this project.

Interesting... Odd dreams and then a tangled mess of threads. Maybe the Universe is telling you that there is something in your life that needs to be straightened out.......

The dreams are all about ex-boyfriends. I think someone is stalking my facebook page.

As for the threads, I believe this refers to how I feel about my sister-in-law. I am dreading Thanksgiving because I know she'll want to be the center of attention. I started on the second cord last night. It is going very well. Not only is it staying untangled, I am progressing much faster than normal. These cords will be a necklace. The green is her favorite color. The other cord is blue because that is her boyfriend's favorite color. I will tie them together to strengthen their relationship. They say they are getting married, but are yet to set a date. I may need to rethink this particular spell.
