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.

Mermaid Of The Pearls

MD26

With iridescent fins and scales as stunning as any mortal evening gown, a rapturous sea nymph rises from the depths clasping a cache of saltwater pearls to beguile her land-bound lover. On a background of softest seafoam, with a wing-shaped fin worked in shades of fuschia, periwinkle and teal, she is a part of the mysterious, impetuous sea captured forever on canvas

Rose Celebration

MD23

Imagine a jubilant parade of old, led by an auburn-haired beauty holding an arch of roses high aloft. A symbol of celebrations everywhere, her shell pink and dusty cream gown is entwined with delicate green garlands and pink and purple rosebuds. A crown of green leaves and deep purple berries atop her unbound hair proclaims her the undisputed queen of a very special day.

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

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.
