As I have mentioned in my last week’s post, there will be four newly handmade christmas ornaments this week. But these are new designs I stitched in 2016. I picked these four lovely designs from Just Nan, The Sweetheart Tree and Stoney Creek. (Also they are less seen in ebay too, probably… I am the first stitcher to stitch and make them into lovely ornaments.) I will always try to make different new designs and ornaments. But since this year onwards, I no longer accept customised orders online due to stitching large designs for my local needleworkshop, hence I am trying very hard to make something unique and special in my ebay auctions. It’s always not easy. But I’ll try.
Okay so let’s get going for this week’s ebay auction. Enjoy these pictures and be right back to check out my ebay auctions in next week. See ya.

I have been working on two Mirabila small motif designs in the past week. So these are the two ornament hangers that I created at the few last days in 2014. I have always wanted to cross stitch Mirabilia Cinderella. However, I gave up the idea since I knew there were too much beading work in the design. But I knew it was a beauty! I got the design chart a year ago and was waiting for a chance to cross stitch her when I have more free time. So before Christmas time, I picked up all the dmc color floss, mill hill seed beads and the Swarovski crystals. I started cross stitching her on 22th December. Other than this design, I also stitch other designs along. Let’s look at the WIPs of Mirabilia Cinderella.
WOW! A total of approximately 270 plus mill hill seed beads and 19 pieces of Black diamond Swarovski crystals are stitched in this design. At the end of the day making her, my eyes and fingers were tired! Borders are stitched with blending floss from dmc 317 and Kreinik #044 metallic blending filament.
Also I cross stitched another Mirabilia design. It’s Shimmering Mermaid. She is my first mermaid in small motif design. Below are the WIPs of Shimmering Mermaid.
Most of the mill hill beads stitched in this design are in petite sizes.
I love her expression.
