a maiden appears!
See that blank spot in the middle of the tree trunk? Everything under that AND the entire right side maiden were completed in the past week. The maiden was started Friday night and finished Sunday morning. I estimate she took about 15 hours... so that means the second maiden will be taking a little more time to show up, as I need a break!
It would be nice to have her companion done by this time next week, though... I really felt like Tree of Hope was taking forever, but now I'm solidly past the halfway mark and I feel good about getting it done soon-ish! Once the maidens are finished, there's some more flower and insect motifs, but the stitching is much less solid on those. And then, of course, BEADS. Billions of them. :p
Whew. Ever feel like you spend more time thinking about what to stitch or drooling over your stash than you actually do stitching? I wish I could be more focused and get more done! Instead, I read blogs and get jealous over how much everyone stitches... well, duh, Rahenna, if you turned off the computer, you could do it too!
Okay, I'm off to give maiden #2 another arm. XD
