3 Newly Made Ornaments In Ebay On 2nd May!!!

As I have mentioned last week, I will be making less ornaments in May. Other than taking some rest for my pair of eyes, I will also be cleaning up my craft room during this summer break. My craft room is not very tidy these days. LOL. I have too many bits and pieces of old  fabrics that need to be clear up. I haven’t clear them last year so will have to get it done this year.

However, I will still try to stitch and make some new ornaments so that they can be also listed in ebay. Also, I am still along the way trying very hard to complete my second Lanarte preorder.

So here are the 3 newly made ornaments that will be listed in ebay on 2nd May 2015.

The Sweetheart Tree – Cache Heart



Stitched on Clay Opalescent 32ct. Lugana, this is a beautiful design. Other than mill hill seed beads, pony beads and heart Lucite bead, this design also uses dmc #12 pearl cotton thread and dmc silver metallic floss. Many special stitching skills are also applied in this design. This is a special design and I specially construct it into a heart shape ornament. Sides are crochet knit with multi pink violet crochet lace. Beautifully finished.

Just Nan – Swan Lake



Stitched on hand dyed vintage dark green 32ct. Belfast Linen, another gorgeous design from Just Nan. Also stitched with dmc gold metallic floss, mill hill seed beads and also a little tiny silver crystal charm is stitched into the center of the design. A rare limited design from Just Nan. Don’t miss out this pretty ornament!

Stoney Creek – Never Give Up



Stitched on vintage country cream 32ct Belfast Linen with an orange Lucite flower bead. This is a pretty design with three very important words to remember forever in life.

~So here are the 3 ornaments that will be listed in ebay on this coming Saturday. Next, I will like to share with you a cute elegant Just Nan design that I miss out when it was first released in the year 2006. Here is the picture of the design.


Just Nan chart with embellishments- Mermaid Heart (released in 2006)

It took me a few months to search this chart pack online. Because most of Just Nan designs are released in a very limited edition, it is not easy to get a chart pack that is released years back.  I went to a few online craft shops, but either they don’t ship to my country or it is out of stock. And that I also miss out a few rare chances to get her in ebay, it’s totally not possible to find one again.

But before I was thinking of giving up hope finding this chart pack again, I was surprised to find one ebay seller selling it and also he/she provide a worldwide shipping service. I was so happy and I purchase it immediately in ebay. I am now really looking forward to receive this little beauty that I once miss it out. I can’t wait!!! Although, maybe… I will not have the time to stitch her now but it is still a very happy thing to see the chart pack in person. If I am able to stitch her during my extra time, I will post my WIPs here. 🙂 my promise.

“Have a wonderful time here. Happy stitchy hours to those who are fingers busy!”



4 Newly Made Ornaments in ebay 25th April

On this coming Saturday 25th April 2015, there will be 4 newly made ornaments listed in ebay. Since it’s going to be summertime holidays soon, I have decided that I will be listing lesser ornaments in ebay for May 2015. I think for some of you who are my loyal customers may have long knew about this. I don’t usually list ornaments in mid-May till early July during the summertime. I usually give a break for myself during this period. As I am still along the way keeping my fingers busy over my second preorder on Lanarte design, I will still be busy making some ornaments and will try my best to get them listed in ebay in the next coming week.  As for 4th of July theme ornaments, there will be only one available this week. Yes! The only one and the very last one. 

 So let’s get started and get a quick peek at the new ornaments this week!

The Sweetheart Tree – Dragonfly Dreams




This is a gorgeous design for summertime. It took me two full days stitching and constructing the ornaments. Lots of special stitching skills are applied to this design. I really love these cute little dragonfly at each corner. Stitched on Platinum Opalescent 32ct Lugana. The glittering effect from the background fabric was beautiful too! However, my camera didn’t managed to catch it.


I later crochet knit the sides of ornament with rainbow crochet lace. Isn’t this lovely?


Just Nan – Butterfly Roses




Stitched on antique white 28ct. Cashel Linen with mill hill seed beads, Butterfly Roses is a cute little elegant design for summertime. I specially picked a matching pink glitter crochet thread to crochet knit the crochet lace at the sides of the ornament.


Just Nan – Pansies


nextweek WP1

Pansies is a rare limited edition design from Just Nan designs. I always wanted to stitched her however as I want her to be an ornament with purple tones of crochet lace at sides, therefore I always ended giving up the idea of stitching her since I can’t get the right crochet thread color. Finally one fine day, I found a right color crochet thread in ebay and I purchased it. When the package came I was so happy to see the beautiful multi color tones of purple crochet cotton thread. I finally cross stitch Pansies and later construct it into a cute little multi purple crochet lace ornament. The design was stitched on lavender mist 28ct. belfast linen.


LAST ONE FOR 4th Of July Theme!

Shepherd’s Bush – A Liberty Child

How can I miss this cute little design from Shepherd’s Bush. I have decided not to make anymore 4th of July theme for 2015. This will be the very last one for 4th of July theme. As I have mentioned earlier on, I will be most probably giving myself a break by mid of May. (a break especially for my pair of eyes. lol.) I need to take a good rest and stitch less in summer. I have been too busy stitching larger projects these days and I really do need to give myself a good rest during the summertime. So, here is this little cute Shepherd’s Bush- a Liberty child design.


Stitched on vintage country cream 32ct Belfast linen. *A Liberty Child is also a limited edition kit from Shepherd’s Bush design.


I hope you have enjoy yourself here. Have a wonderful day and for those who are also busy cross stitching  your projects like me, “Have a wonderful time stitching too!” 🙂

Upcoming Cross Stitching Projects


First, I will like to thank all Ebay bidders and visitors for coming here to visit my little cross stitching blog in wordpress. Thank you so much for loving my needlecraft creations! I hope all of you will have a joyful time visiting here. Time flies, it’s spring time! It was like yesterday that we just celebrated Christmas and New Year then, following Easter. In the next few months, it will be 4th of July, then follow by Halloween, Thanksgiving and then Christmas again. It’s been more than 16 years I have been selling my needlecraft work in ebay. Looks like I’m getting old. Well, but I’m never too old for cross-stitching! (lol) I will keep this passion and love forever! 🙂

Okay, Here’s a summary of what I am cross-stitching currently.

WIPs of my current projects:



I make these two designs into ornaments and get them listed in ebay on this coming Saturday. I will update the pictures of my newly made ornaments tomorrow here.

~I have also picked my mermaid design stitching wishlist in 2015. I ordered the materials from my supplier on last Friday. I received the package on Tuesday morning. Here they are. I am still lacking two types of Mill Hill beads because they are out of stock. They will be coming in by end of this week. WOW!! Too Many beads….looking at them makes my heart beat faster. So probably you have guess which design I will be stitching. Anyway, I am prepared for the lots and lots of beading work. I picked the design for three reasons. First, I have already had most of the dmc floss needed to stitch the project. Second, I just love the effect with many beads on her, a gorgeous 3D effect when finished. Third, I just love the way how she posed herself in the design. I will be stitching her in a special hand-dyed Ocean Mist -Opalescent 32ct. Belfast Linen. I will hand-dyed the linen myself, so the background color will be special. Hopefully. 🙂
