5 New Ornaments In Ebay 26th September!!

Last Chance To Get Your Halloween Ornaments!!

Last week was a pretty awesome stitching week for me. As I have decided to stop making Halloween ornaments, I am left with little extra time. So I have choosen two very rare retired designs to cross stitch. They are from Just Nan Fairy Roses and Passione Ricamo. Talking about Fairy Roses. I really love this design. I want to make her into a pretty ornament. Yes, something special too. But because it is a retired design, it will be impossible to purchase the painted fairy charm. Without the fairy charm, you can’t complete the design. So I search for this fairy charm and finally manage to get a very similar one. My next problem is to add in colors. I managed to picked some colors from art shops (color paints specially for metal or silver.) My next step is to hand-paint the fairy which I find most painful to work with. The charm alone was small measuring not more than 22mm. So the fairy’s face was so tiny. I have to paint her face using an extra fine art brush.


And… here is the final result.  I air dry the hand painted fairy charm for 24 hours before stitching it onto my cross stitch design. Design was stitched on cashel linen. ~ This photo was taken when the design was half completed.


~Completed! This design has so many flowers and leaves, the floss colors are all in different tones. I have to keep on changing different dmc color floss to stitch. A Little troublesome…. but it was “Gorgeous” when completed. Picture do not tell justice.

Other than stitching this rare design, I have also stitch other designs. This is one of them.


I have miss out  the chance to stitch this Passione Ricamo Little Christmas Angel last year. So this year, I started her early. She was stitched on a hand-dyed misty sky opalescent glittering Lugana. I wanted to stitch her on a special color linen. I picked a gold metallic floss to stitch in the borders.  ~photo taken when it was completed.

Okay, so let’s take a look at the completed handmade ornaments.

Ebay 5 New Ornaments 12th September!

Moving towards mid of September 2015,  I will be trying to list more other seasonal themes, fall themes, thanksgiving and Christmas ornaments down the weeks. Some of you have been asking me if I will be stitching and redo another same ornaments that you have miss out in ebay earlier on. Well, sometimes I do make similar ones but not exactly the same one. Meaning color of linen/ fabric, cotton yarn lace colors etc. may be change. Since starting of 2015 , I have decided to make one limited ornament for one design. I do think that it is important to keep my handmade ornaments in a very limited edition and it is this reason that made handmade items special in the first place. Since they are special, they should be only available in one limited stock.  

Okay, so let’s get moving and take a look at the 5 ornaments this week.
