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

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.

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.

Millennium Angel

MD27

Poised before an arbor of greenery and robed in graceful swaths of coolest pewter satin, Mirabilia’s Millennium Angel is the beautiful way to herald in the coming 21st Century. Tiny seed pearls adorn her halo, her outstretched wings glisten with touches of gold, and she bears a bouquet of full-blown pink roses, symbols of hope and goodwill. Our wish is that, in creating her, you will share in her spirit of tranquillity and that, once finished, her peaceful gaze will bless your home from within as the modern world without moves into an increasingly fast-paced age.

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.

Fairy Tales

MD20

Once upon a time, in a field strewn with magical flower petals, a doting mother read a bedtime tale to her very littlest angel. A gentle breeze rustled her lacy gown, the golden child smiled, and they lived happily ever after.

Deco Spirits

MD19

If you’ve come to expect anything from Nora Corbett, it’s the unusual and unexpected, and her new “Deco Spirits” continues that tradition. Inspired by art deco architecture, the four spirits represent the elements of earth, fire, water, and air. Each features muted metallics in shades of seafoam, periwinkle, gold, and aubergine. Because they can be stitched and framed together or individually, “Deco Spirits” is the perfect choice for beginners or advanced stitchers, or anyone who appreciates a fresh, innovative design.

Stone Roses

MD17

Green ivy protectively encircles an angel turned to stone centuries ago, as she in turn stands guard over an enchanted garden, a pale pink sash forever fluttering at her waist. The drapery borders at her feet create a sampler effect, complete with mother-of-pearl buttons and fine white ribbon.

The Baby Boat

MD16

One tiny sister sleeps, another knits, and the third scatters pale pink rose petals on the glistening water as they drift lazily by in a rose-draped, swan-shaped boat. Their fuzzy hats and collars, innocent pastels and sparkling crystals make them an utterly charming trio. But will they be home in time for tea?

English Roses

MD14

Silk ribbon roses, beaded leaves and softly falling rose petals surround this profile of a Victorian woman lost in private thoughts. Her gown of pale purple crystal beads is accented by an elaborate circle of pale pink roses in her hair. So beautiful, so mysterious, it’s hard to believe she’ll be alone with her thoughts for long.
