Collecting Scissors?? 

Here’s my new Little Gems Scissor to share with you.

WP1

WP2

A good reason for buying this little gem scissor. “Very Small!”

Yes. This small size scissor catch my eye. My old Victorian scissor measures 4 inches long. As you can see from the photo above, it’s half the size of my old scissor. I can now bring this little gem anywhere I go. Yay!

Review of little gem: -Okay. It can cut any threads but not as sharp as compare to my old Victorian from yarntree.com. It does not have a very sharp tip but still serve it’s very best. If you have thick fingers, it might be a problem. But I have thin fingers. So it’s still fine for me.

So far, I have been using my Victorian 4 inches. It still in it’s best shape. However…, if you can see from the photo above, my gold-plated handle has started to turn silvery. I am starting to wonder whether my little gem will be the same. Anyway, both are great to add into my collection. I’m not actually into collecting embroidery scissors but I always love to have one more unique collection. For those who are looking to purchase Little Gem scissor, I hope my review helps.

Thank you for visiting my blog. See ya!   🙂

4 New Ornaments In ebay on 14th November

This Saturday, there will be only  4 newly handmade ornaments for sale.  

Since it’s coming to middle~end of November and as I have sold most of my Christmas ornaments for this year so probably from starting of next week, I will not be making anymore Christmas theme ornaments.  This is to make sure those of you who purchase my Christmas handmade ornaments will receive your ornaments before the Christmas week. (Since I know some of you purchase the ornament as Christmas gifts.) So just 2-3 more Christmas ornaments to list in ebay in the next coming two weeks. However, all unsold ornaments will still be relisted in ebay. As shipment will take 8-10 working days to reach most destinations, so if you are thinking of getting your very last Christmas ornaments from me, do check out my ebay auctions in the next two weeks.  I will put them on sale price.  🙂

Also, a big Thank you! to those of you who have already purchased your Christmas ornaments from me. I really hope you enjoy your purchases.  ~So now, let’s take a look at what I have handmade in the past week.

Special Ornament from Just Nan Queen’s Heart

WP1

Started stitching Just Nan Queen’s Heart on sunday. This is a rare limited edition design. And since the design is in a heart shape, I have also create this into a heart shape Swarovski crystal ornament. Yes! lots of glittering crystals again! Love the glittering effect from the crystals. A silver crown charm is also stitch in this design. Photo showing the ornament. Tassel is not yet completed. I will add in the crystal tassel later. This round I will make the tassel a little different. Maybe.. I will add in a large teardrop crystal at the bottom.

So here is the tassel. I added 5 pieces of 12mm pink ab teardrop crystals around the bottom level of the tassel.

So here is the tassel. I added 5 pieces of 12mm pink ab teardrop crystals around the bottom level of the tassel. I used up a total of 298 pieces of Swarovski crystals, including 5 pieces of pink AB teardrop crystals. The crystal ornament is gorgeous in person, picture do not tell justice. Also for this heart shape ornament, the crochet lace design has also been changed. (have you notice that?)  🙂

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!

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 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.

Mirabilia The Queen Mermaid, November Topaz Fairy Ornaments !!

WIPs Of Mirabilia “The Queen Mermaid” Ornament hanger

WP1.3

Started my cross stitching for ‘The Queen Mermaid’ on 7th January 2015. She is the Queen of all mermaids. Holding a treasure box in her hands, her body was stitched with blending floss from dmc floss and kreinik blending filament, adding a gorgeous glittering effect on her body. Also a purple crystal apple bead was stitched in this design. Treasure box was also stitched with kreinik metallic floss. Beautiful!

WP1.4

Queen Mermaid was stitched with lots of mill hill sead beads. Also the design was a little larger in size to fit into my small motif border. However, as you can see from the above picture, all details of mermaid can be seen after finishing cross stitching the small motif design. So it is worth cross stitching some extra parts of the design. I love this mermaid queen! Again borders were stitched with blending floss from dmc and kreinik blending filament.

WP1.5

Okay here is another Mirabilia fairy I stitched along on 9th January 2015. Although she is a November Fairy but it’s always a happy thing to stitch her in January. I had a hard time searching for the 9 pieces of yellow flower beads. Finally, I found the flower beads one day so she finally fall into my cross stitching wishlist.

WP1.6

Stitched with lots of mill hill sead beads, 9 pieces of topaz Swarovski Crystal drops and 9 pieces of yellow flower beads. Some parts of her wings are stitched with blending floss from dmc and kreinik metallic floss. The borders are stitched with blending floss from dmc 926 and kreinik metallic blending filament. Part of the fairy’s hair was also stitched with blending floss from two dmc colors too. November Topaz Fairy is one of the more complicated design to cross stitch in the “fairy of the month series”.
