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.
