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.

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.

Fairy Flora

MD7

Sprightly and lithe, the tiniest of forest fairies flits among dew-covered flowers and berries. Barely bigger than a blossom herself, her dress is fashioned from fresh lavender petals, her wings from silvery cobweb silk, and her magic wand from a single falling star. Take care or you’re sure to fall under her magical spell with the first turn of your needle.
