Ebay 10th October~ 5 New Ornaments!!

WP3

Working on this cute little Garden Prince. I can’t wait to finish the entire design. 

WP4

Stitched on antique white 28ct. cashel line. Just Nan Garden Prince was a rare retired design. I am thinking of making this into a pretty little ornament’s tassel with only pearls , mill hill seed beads and Swarovski crystals. Most important, the colors must match well with the design itself. So here’s the final result!

Picture taken when the ornament was hang up instead of placing it down. I add a golden cap to add more bead tassels. The ornament tassel is also one of the eye catching thing other than the gold frog charm and the design itself. About 25 pieces of rose, light pink and olive color Swarovski crystals are used to make the tassel. Too bad, my Panasonic Lumix camera didn’t managed to catch the sparkle effect from the crystals. ~ Now, I have created another interesting ornament!    🙂

Also, I’ve stitched another rare design. Just Nan Christmas Keepsake. Stitched on 28ct. cashel linen.

WP1

Working or stitching this design is a challenging thing for me. There are so many different stitching methods in this design. For example, the scotch stitches was difficult. It took me an hour to get it done. The design must be work on an ivory or antique white linen and the scotch stitches must be in dmc B5200 white color. So a fairer whiter floss against a more ivory background. What an Eye Challenging job for me!

WP2

I managed to complete this design the next day late evening. A bronze Christmas painted wreath charm is stitched on the center of the design. There are a total of 8 roses in this design. 4 smaller ones are stitched with petite stitches and the other 4 larger roses are stitched at corners. Can you see them? There are also 4 small flower stitched with gold metallic floss.

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.

WIPs1

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.

WIPs2

~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.

WIPs3

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.

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

WIPs

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

WIPs

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.

14

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!” 🙂
