So happy for Wipocalypse

With the help of Wipocalypse I have been able to just about get my Magnolia done (only a partial petal left and the beading (whoo-hoo). This was one of those projects I wasn't sure I would ever get back a matter of fact it is one of the oldest projects I currently have. So this is exciting. I also included the one-over-one heart done by the Mother for me as a Mother's Day Gift. I have been trying to get some good photos, but the camera I have has not been too user friendly. Thanks again for the award for our really makes our day.

An Award!

Maiden Mother Crone has received it's first award! The three of us would like to thank Nikki from Nikki's stitching for this amazing honor, her blog has so much talent in such a little
space that I am very glad we found it!

Liebster is a German word, meaning favorite, dearest or beloved, and the Liebster is awarded by bloggers to other, newer bloggers who have fewer than 200 followers, to spread the word and help the new(er)bies gain wider recognition.

The award comes with four conditions that each recipient must satisfy when accepting:

1. Choose five up-and-coming blogs (with fewer than 200 followers) to award the Liebster to.

2. Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.

3. Post the award on your blog. List the bloggers you are giving the award to with links to their sites. Leave comments on their blogs so they know about the award.

4. Share five random facts about yourself that people don't know about you.

5 Random Facts

1. I went to High School with the Crone's son, and she was also my biology and botany teacher.

2. I received a Bachelors of Science in Integrative and Organismal Biology with a minor in English.

3. I am 29 and love to read young adult fiction (which I secretly hope to write some day).

4. I am a banecrophobic (fear of the walking dead) and for some reason cannot stop watching "The Walking Dead" on AMC!

5. My favorite food is beer chicken made by the Crone's husband (he jokes and says when I find a husband he will teach him how to make it as my wedding gift!)

I invite the Mother and the Crone to leave 5 things about themselves as well by editing this post, for I am only a third of the blog...

The Maiden


1. I am the mother of 5 children - we truly are the "Brady Bunch".

2. I am a police dispatch supervisor, who stitches to maintain some sanity in an otherwise insane world.

3. I have a new found obsession with hockey. GO BRUINS!!!!!!!!

4. I grew up in Las Vegas, before defecting to the North.

5. Still debating my 5th fact.

The Mother

1. I am the Crone so that means I am on the final cycle of the wheel...thus I have two children and a fabulous 7 grandchildren (one who is only 5 weeks old and sooooooooooooo cute!!!)

2. I have been an educator for 23 years...I have a masters degree and am nationally certified in Science for adolescence and adults.

3. My favorite artform is doing mozaic art...I love stitching, but that is more of a sanity thing..I also do watercolor painting and am thinking about crashing whole heartedly into another obsession of using polymer clay (yes I have already bought just about everything you can before ever touching a piece yet..). I guess really my favorite thing is gardening in the dirt...keeps me grounded! :)

4. I got married 7 days after high school graduation, so we have been hanging out for the last 36 years...guess I'll keep him!

5. I love sharing our stitching with all of you...your stitching is just as exciting to us as well!

Nominated Blogs

Below is the list of five blogs I would like to extend the award to...

1. Stitching through Life Chris is an amazing stitcher who has not only inspired me to return to "The Kiss" but also to start "Elizabeth." I just love her Mirabilia selections!

2. Mel's Place this stitching sweetie has a great blog (I was floored by the picture of a
stitcher that is at the top of her blog), I just love all of her Mirabilia's and the amazing fabric choices she comes up with!

3. Stitching in the City I found Hannah through her Mirabilia "My Lady's Garden" and have adored following her blog ever since!

4. The Mirabilia Stitcher enough said. Just kidding, TJ is a color conversion genius!

5. A fairy princess dreams and stitches Julie is a fellow stitching buddy of mine in Las Vegas and constant source of inspiration (our SALs are really motivating!).

Hopefully none of you talented ladies has received this award yet!

I know what you are thinking... "Hasn't she done this mermaid before?" and the answer is" yes!" While my Mediterranean Mermaid is hanging in my bathroom this one is for my friend at The Framing Studio in Las Vegas. Out of all the Mermaids, she wanted this one and I was happy to oblige! I have forgotten how much krenick was in this and how the beads really do make a difference. I am very excited to see how it will turn out, especially since the fabric is so different from the pale green I choose.

Stats: began on Saturday March 17, 2012. 32 ct overdyed linen 2 strands DMC over 2. A very sucessful hermit! The Maiden

Tsk tsk late WIPocalypse

I really wanted to post this sooner and I kept saying as soon as I finish this section of 900, but it is getting further and further from the full moon...
The picture looks washed out, but it is late and I am too tired to take another. I will take better pics for international hermit and stitch weekend. The Maiden
