5 Newly handmade ornament – 31st November!!

Before I start, I’ll like to :

‘ Wish All A HAPPY HALLOWEEN ! ! !

This week, I have been busy stitching and making a very special ornament. Again this design is a retired limited edition design from Just Nan. It’s Just Nan Wildflower Wishes. This design is complicated and has lots of colors in it. There are also some special stitches in this design. I want to make her into a special theme ornament with lots of Swarovski crystals and faux pearls. So here is some work in progress photos when I begin making her.   🙂

Photos of the Work in progress…

Just Nan Wildflower Wishes – Started stitching this design on sunday morning. Stitched on lt. mocha 32ct Belfast linen. The gold angel charm will be stitch in the center of the design later.

 

Now it's 50% Completed! Already, I can see the pretty colors from the design. Love the wildflowers!

Crystal Beads and More... Yes! here are the faux pearls and Swarovski crystal beads that will be use to stitch and make this ornaments.

Swarovski Crystal Beads and More…
Yes! here are the faux pearls and Swarovski crystal beads that will be use to stitch and make for the tassel of this ornament. And I expected I may end up using lots of these beads.

And here is the final result…

Just Nan Wildflower Wishes Ornament is an extremely Rare Handmade Ornament that I rarely handmade with Lots of Swarovski crystal beads and faux pearls. Over 380 pieces of Swarovski crystal beads from 4mm to 3mm sizes are used to make the design. Additional of 190 pieces of 3mm-6mm white AB, white, light yellow and light rose faux pearl beads are also used to make the design. This ornament is also a special one, because other than the 3 sides of ornament are hand crochet lace, the bottom part are instead hand stitched with Swarovski crystal beads. Because more beads are used to stitch and make this ornament, it will add a little weight to the ornament. (unlike the usual ornament that I usually handmade with only cotton yarns.) Also, the price of this ornament will be higher because of the materials used to make her. But she is the only one limited ornament in the world (I believe) …if not, she will be the only one limited edition ornament in ebay. Enjoy the pictures!   🙂

5 Ebay New Ornaments On 24th October!

Taken a week’s rest from listing in ebay. I will like to thank all of you who have purchased my handmade ornaments in my October’s ebay listings. Well, age is really catching up… Now I have to go on little breaks in each month. A little rest for my pair of eyes. From  the starting of end of October, I will be rather slow making Christmas ornaments for this year. Last year, I stopped making Christmas ornaments due to some larger preorder projects on hand. And this year I may also be making only a few batch of Christmas ornaments. I may end most of my Christmas ornaments before end of November this year. (just to make sure everyone receive their Christmas ornaments from me before 23th December 2015.) So just a few more batch to go. ( these Christmas ornaments will be listed in ebay and they will probably last me about 3-4 weeks of ebay listings to go.) Also to clear off my Christmas ornaments in stock, I will be listing some of these ornaments at discount prices. Do Check them out if you are interested to get them for Christmas.

Okay, Let’s now take a look at what I have completed in the past week!

Special Handmade Ornament

I started stitching this Just Nan Royal Blossoms design on last sunday. I took lots of work in progress photos with my lumix camera. Guess what? I accidentially  deleted all the pictures in the SD card.”God! What have I done?” (lol)  So all my WIPs photos are gone in a second.  Careless me!!   😦   (Sorry about it!)

So here left the newly taken photos from the completed ornament.

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.
