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.

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.

My Lady’s Garden

MD9

Just beyond a fanciful garden gate, a well-born lady tends her flower garden in all its autumn glory. Her dusty mauve dress and burnt orange wrap are the perfect complement to the amethyst, fir and coral blush colors of her late-blooming hollyhocks and asters.

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.

Christmas Elegance

The Rose Of Sharon

Pause for a moment with this golden-gowned maiden and relish the beauty of a shaded, fragrant bower of trailing pink roses and jaunty hollyhocks. Her elegantly trailing gown and the intricate artistry of the romantic stone garden arch make this one of our best-loved designs.
