Autumn Queen

MD45

Completing the series by Nora Corbett, “Autumn Queen” takes her place beside “Winter Queen”, “Spring Queen”, and “Summer Queen” in a royal celebration of the seasons. Gowned in shades of mauve and teal, and bedecked with a king’s ransom worth of jewels, her sumptuous cloak is a Wisper-edged wonder of olive, ebony and metallic bronze brocade. After all, isn’t it customary for autumn to arrive in a blaze of glory?

The long-awaited companion to Nora Corbett’s Queen series, Mirabilia’s “Spring Queen” takes elegance to a whole new realm.

A Midsummer Night’s Fairy

MD30

Behold! ‘Tis but a fair wood sprite perched upon a mossy branch in the misty gloaming of a midsummer’s eve! From her periwinkle crown to her sweeping purple satin hem to the iridescent span of her swallow-tailed wings, she’s scarce bigger than a lightening bug. But lest she fool you by her tiny size, remember well her magical powers. Save the stitching of her enchanted glowing wand for last, then watch as she casts her mystical spell over all who pass close by.

Giggles In The Snow

MD31

As much of a giggle to stitch as it is to give, this newest design by Nora Corbett for Mirabilia is an ode to those euphoric winter days when children dress themselves in layer upon crazy-quilt layer, pull on mommy-made mittens and scarves, and flaunt collars and cuffs embroidered by doting aunts and grandmas.
Stitch the little boy, the little girl, or stitch them both to hang together. Whichever you choose, it’s certain that the one having the most fun in the crystal-beaded snow will be you!

Required materials
Stitched on 32 count White linen from Wichelt or Zweigart. Each design's area is 8 ¹ " x 9 ¸" with a stitch count of 130 x 150.

Snow Days

MD29

Big snowstorm. No school. Cooped up. Bored. Get on mom’s nerves. Bundle up. Stomp outside. Build a snowman. Numb fingers. Stomp inside. Dry mittens on radiator. Press nose to frosty window. Admire the snowman standing guard in the swirling, twirling ballet of snow.

Crystal Christmas

MD28

In a secret clearing deep in a far-away woods, a party of snow angels gather in their frosty finery to pay homage to the coming of Christmas. While icy-blue snowflakes tickle tiny noses and cheeks, icicle beads, juniper swags and a shining crystalline star all find their way to the windswept tree. The winter companion to Mirabilia’s “Angel Proclamation”, this design lets you stitch all five cherubs, the three closest to the tree, or whichever one makes your heart burst out in a chorus of fa-la-la-la’s.

Summer Queen

MD22

The stunning companion to Nora Corbett’s “Winter Queen”, the new “Summer Queen” also commands admiration all on her own. From the top of her golden chignon to the tip of her graceful writing plume to the hem of her heavy satin Tiffany-blue gown, she is a symbol of all that is glorious and perfect. Just like summer.

Winter Queen

MD13

Regal in pale periwinkle blue satin against a serene white background, this cool beauty’s upswept hair is adorned with purple violets beneath a beaded coronet. Whisper-white ermine trims her elegantly draped gown, and strands of blue beads lend an opulent touch to her hem. If you find beauty in a clear, quiet, blue-skied January day, you’ll love our Winter Queen.
