Newly finished  Ornaments in ebay on 28th March 2015

I have just managed to completed 4 newly handmade ornaments and they will be listed in ebay on this coming Saturday. While I also managed to stitch along one of my preordered cross stitch from Lanarte design. My supplier finally brought in some new stock on White Opalescent 32ct. lugana fabrics. I have been waiting them for long. I love this glittering fabrics but it was so hard to get them here. Lucky Me! Okay, so here’s the four pretty ornaments.

The Sweetheart Tree Design -Butterfly Welcome

This is a very pretty design from The Sweetheart Tree. The design use Week Dye Works threads. Also lots of mill hill seed beads and pony beads are stitched in this design.

~ Next , I will like to show my recent finished pin cushion scissor fob. If you have been following my posts, you may already know that I am looking forward to stitch a mermaid design in 2015. I have not picked the design yet. But since I recently broke my ‘old red scissor’ and I don’t remember how it got damaged. lol.  Anyway it’s already damaged and that I urgently need a new pair of scissor, I went over to my supplier for help. I want to get myself a good pair of embroidery scissor. If you are sharp, you may have already notice it in one of my photos above. Well, because of this lovely new addition to my cross stitch room , I want to make it special. So I make a mermaid scissor fob for her. Well, just a little cute scissor fob finished with a crochet lace around the sides with some seed beads. Btw, this design was from Just nan. I stitched this little design on a special hand dyed misty sea Opalescent  32ct. linen. The fabric glitter but my camera didn’t catch it. Mermaid face was stitched with 1 over 1 petite stitches. Specially made for my new embroidery scissor.

Yes! I really LOVE Mermaids!! ~ enjoy the picture.
