Take your needle my child,
and work at your pattern;
it will come out a rose by and by.
Life is like that - one stitch at a time
taken patiently and as in life,
all will come out all right,
just as your embroidery.

Playing Cards may have been used in China as early as the 7th century and perhaps were known in India around this time as well.
By the 13th century, the entire continent enjoyed card-playing; the British card-makers petitioned for protection from imported cards, and German printers were block-printing rather than hand-painting cards by the late 1400's.
Dutch, French and British settlers in the New World brought the playing cards with them. Americans and others use the 52 card deck based on the French deck, and include the medieval motifs of the spade, club, diamond and heart.
For less than a price of a store bought card, send a fun game booklet. Add a deck of cards and these make wonderful gifts for someone in hospital, traveling or just for fun.
