The Crone started her Halloween Quaker this weekend too! I love that she randomly started at the opposite side, that way we can see a preview of what is to come!
The Mother joined in the fun with a conversion of Mirabilia's Mermaids of the Deep Blue. This was such a fast stitch for me, I know she will fly through this project, which is good because I cannot wait to see them in Orange! The Maiden
October Friday the 13th stitching was so productive and fun I think I will need to make this a tradition!
I had originally taken the day off for the Las Vegas Mirabilia retreat, and when that was canceled I decided to take a "mental health day." (Can you tell I grew up with counselor parents? When I was young those 3 words would get me out of school no questions asked!)
The Crone and I jumped on the bandwagon and are doing a SAL for the Halloween Quaker, what better day to start it than on Friday the 13th while watching Halloween Classics?!
I did devote a large portion of my day to Mirabilias, beading the kiss and finishing another portion of my Mystery project. The Maiden
Today I post our 42nd update, the largest posting year since 2012. This milestone marks my return to stitching, and a renewal of the art and friendship that brought the maiden, mother and the Crone together.
This friendship has seen me through the past 2 decades and has been a source of strength I am grateful for today. While I am the only one left in Las Vegas, the Mother is a native and the Crone built her life here. We are devastated by the tragic events of October 1st, a day that has left it's mark on our city. I am heartened by the response of my neighbors, police, first responders, and world community. We are and will remain Vegas Strong!
I spent the night stitching away with The mother, after visiting our LNS and enjoying a dinner out. We both resisted the urge to start something new and as a consequence I was able to reach the bottom of my Sirena!
I was also fortunate enough to spend some time over the weekend with the Crone in St. George, we stitched away in a hotel room and even found Ghastlies Fabric on sale!
I brought some WIPs to show the crone, and she loved my Barbara Ann design so much that she found this gem from the designer I just had to have! I'll be stitching halloween designs for the next year at this rate!
While at the LNS I also picked up parts 2&3 of Something Wicked by Sam Sarah. I avoid charts that come in parts, but I made an exception for this one! The maiden
