Fairies

Lilly Of The Woods – The Dreaming Fairy

MD80

Fast asleep after prancing and dancing throughout the night, this beautiful fairy certainly leads a charmed life. With dangling jewels, a glittering gown, and ethereal wings, we find her quietly nestled in a blooming tree. Usually planning parties with her fairy friends and crafting fanciful gifts for them out of blossoms and magic treasures, this is one of the few moments you will ever catch her motionless.

Cottage Garden Fairy

MD63

Pretty, Pretty, Pretty! In the colors of the cottage garden.
– the blue shawl is dyed with “forget-me-nots”
– her glittering dew dripped gown is made of woven “celedon” seedlings from her cutting garden,
-her wings are the pale pink/purple only found when gazing at certain “cosmos” in bloom against the sun,
-the bodice was formed by sewing together rose petals from the climbing rose her grandmother planted that no one can remember the name of.
Oh, and lest we forget the lovely “baby blue eyes” that dot the edges of her wings as well as the edges of her garden paths. We think she would be lovely paired with her sister “The Queen Mermaid”.

July’s Amethyst Fairy

MD59

Fourth in Nora Corbett’s “Year of the Fairies” Collection, July’s Amethyst Fairy captures a radiant fairy mere moments before she is to meet with her long-awaited fairy prince. Because even enchanted glens get warm in July, her shadow-hued gown is off-the-shoulder satin, accented with precious gems the color of the midsummer sky.
Her bouquet? Rarest lavender roses. And behind her, airy wings flutter majestically, shimmering with violet amethysts – amethysts as perfect as this moment.

Titania Queen Of The Fairies

MD38

The companion to Nora Corbett’s 1997 “A Midsummer Night’s Fairy,” Titania harks from the same enchanted, misted wood. Resplendent in a simple rosebud crown and a pair of golden, gauzy, gorgeous wings, she perches upon a tiny limb and offers these words from Shakespeare to all who lovingly stitch her sumptuous rose and coral gown:
“Hand in hand, with fairy grace, will we sing and bless this place.”

Three For Tea

MD37

Unlike many of us in the workaday world, these three lovely enchanted beings haven’t forgotten the importance of the quiet reflection and gentle conversation that comes with taking tea. At a quarter of three, with hair let down, stately gowns and mother-of-pearl cups in hand, they remind us all that there’s nothing quite like a spot of tea for setting the world to rights.

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.

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.
