Gift of Hope

The Crone's Christmas gift is complete! True to my nature I procrastinated working on this until the very last minute (I received the Crone's WIP on Thanksgiving, when the idea occurred to us to have me stitch the 2 Maidens, the one aspect that had stalled the Crone's progress). Over the past two days I have been cozied up on the Crone's couch, watching holiday movies (like my favorites "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers" and "The Ghost and Mrs. Muir") and spending an astounding 20 hours finishing up the second maiden in a marathon of stitching. The conversation and hot chocolate made it all the better.

Happy Holidays,

The Maiden


  1. Stunning Stunning Stunning!!!!!! . I knew you could do it!!!!!!

  2. This is very beautiful! Think I'm going to add it to my list :D Merry Christmas

  3. Just looked up all the old "Tree of Hope" postings and realized that I began in July 2010. This gives me incentive to be completed by July 2011. I year sounds like such a long period of time, but when you think about many other projects have gotten in the way. (Gee what a dilemma!) But with the ladies completed for Xmas by the Maiden, looks like I have a pretty good shot at making this WIP one that is a finish for 2011. It is also the second major on my it will definitely be part of the rotation.
