This is my first completed Mirabilia "Deepest Love". I was sick in bed for a couple months so she was completed from January 1 to March 3rd. Don't want to be sick again, but I would really like to cross stitch like that every day!
This is my work in progress. Waiting for Ships will be a complementary piece to Deepest Love. But there still could be more. We, the compulsive obsessive members of Mother Maiden Crone do already own every Mirabilia pattern that has to do with mermaids.
The stitches we choose are more than an art form. They represent varying threads of the tapestry of our lives. Why do we choose the fairy, or the mermaid, is there a reasoning behind them? As Carole King once sang, "My life has been a tapestry of rich and royal hues, an ever lasting vision of an ever changing view...a wondrous woven magic."
In the beginning, it started as a common affinity for cross stitching. It has become an obsession and now that we are scattered across the west, this is our vessel to share our work. The maiden, the mother, and the crone. Three parts of a whole, bonded together in cross stitch.
