Chapter 7: Pride

Autumn Winter 2017 / 2018

Queen to come

Silk satin overlaid with silk embroidery, laser-cut silk flowers, glass beads, and freshwater pearls.

“Kay and Gerda walked on, hand in hand, and wherever they went they found the most delightful spring and blooming flowers. Soon they recognized the big town where they lived, with its tall towers, in which the bells still rang their merry peals. They went straight on to grandmother’s door, up the stairs and into her room. Everything was just as they had left it, and the old clock ticked in the corner, and the hands pointed to the time. As they went through the door into the room they perceived that they were grown up. The roses clustered round the open window, and there stood their two little chairs. Kay and Gerda sat down upon them still holding each other by the hand. All the cold empty grandeur of the Snow Queen’s palace had passed from their memory like a bad dream…

 

And there they both sat, grown up and yet children—children at heart; and it was summer—warm, beautiful summer.” (Source)
