Stitch Witch Journal
I may make other pendulum boards that deal with particulars like a quilting board that indicates cutting, piecing, applique, hand quilting, tying, or machine quilting. I'm sure this could be adapted for most needle arts. It could also be adapted for an individual practice such as Tarot. I'm sure a reading could be designed around knitting or crochet. I think for Tarot I would decide what the suits indicate such as yarn type or gauge of needle. Or I might base things by elements so if cups are water and water is cold a sweater might be the project. There's not a set of guidelines, but it easy to figure out what works for you if you think about it.
In other news, last night my father-in-law took me to an artist guild meeting. It was very interesting and I learned quite a bit about where to show and sell my work even though that wasn't the focus of the meeting. I was the youngest person there and I was the only textile artist. It was mostly painters though the guild is open to artists who work in all mediums. I'm thinking seriously about joining.
