Dear Cross-Stitch artist,
I am delighted to present to you a very special 25th anniversary pattern. Lady Mirabilia is a
silver beaded celebration. She is laced with leaves and has Art Deco inspired details.
A unique butterfly charm has been created
especially for her and is exclusive to this pattern.
She celebrates 25 years of ephemeral fairies,
sparkling mermaids and visions of strong
feminine beauty. I am honored to
have been a part of the creative process
for your treasured works.
Forever dreaming in stitches, floss and beads.
Thread your needle and meet our Alice. She is poised like a porcelain doll on the edge of adventure. She will banter with smirky cats, meet with heartless queens and go to a crazy tea party. She rushes into the alternative universe with unconventional characters and fascinating experiences. Her many secrets are stitched in her face and cascading ribbons.
On a bed draped of watery silk and mossy vines sits a muse for fairy tales and Gothic paintings. Writers and poets wait to share her secrets. Painters try to match her
alabaster skin with flowing paint. Stitchers will weave her gown with silk threads.
An ethereal goddess in the woods is
captured in a moment on linen.
Follow the patterned trail with your needle
and floss like a map to deeper creativity and
understanding. Let her lead you across the sea
of cornflower blue. Weave through the waving
lavender fields. Bead the glowing cinnamon fireflies dotting the fields. Even the hot fuschia shades of feathers are like flowing lava from deep within. This goddess spirit guide is designed to lead you to your inner glow. Hot, bright and beautiful, like the sun.
Royal Games II
“Off with their heads!” “Let them eat cake!” Bow Down!” “Kiss the Rings!”.
With great pleasure, we present to you
the Queen of Diamonds and the Queen of Clubs.
They join their sisters from the previous
Mirabilia pattern “Royal Games I” (MD150).
They too can be stitched as
two single cards or as pictured.
They are now a full court of lovely
powerful and wise rulers.
Miss Cherry Blossom
She wanders through a tranquil lush garden.
The air is full with the scent of warming spring earth. Handwoven silk flutters lightly over carpets of petals. Her hairpins are bright and sparkling with their myriad of twinkling beads.
The patterns dancing on her gown reflect the pink that has covered the countryside. She moves through this “Snowstorm of Cherry Blossoms”, where all the most romantic scenes in movies are set. We invite you to celebrate this otherworldly blizzard of tranquility in every delightful detail of this elegant pattern.
Lady of Mystery
Who is this lovely maiden with tangled locks and alabaster skin, pausing beneath an arbor of dramatic black roses?
Perhaps she’s an innocent heroine from a suspenseful tale, awakened by dark dreams. Will she rendezvous with a supernatural lover or will she wander alone, searching forever for her lost soulmate? She is yours to stitch. You decide her fate.
2017 Australian Mirabilia Retreat
Release: June 15, 2017
Inspired by the Botticelli painting, The Birth of Venus, this sensuous maiden rises from the depths of the sea enveloped in her long lustrous hair. She holds her heart in her hand – perhaps to lure some shy lover? Her tail shimmers in shades of greens and blues, strands of crystals dance in the underwater currents and all is complemented by a regal halo of pearls. Create your own masterpiece with this stunning new pattern from one of America’s most enchanting designers.
“Off with their heads!” “Let them eat cake!” “Bow down!” “Kiss the ring!”
The queens have arrived. The Queen of Hearts and the Queen of Spades will be obeyed by the entire kingdom. They can be stitched as pictured, or as two separate cards.
They are soon to be joined by their sisters The Queen of Diamonds and the Queen of Clubs, all with their own unique personalities
and talents for ruling.
This design is inspired by the Greek myth of Andromeda and the constellation named for her. Like Cassiopeia MD131, there are stitches of special floss that glow in the dark to
represent the constellation within the design. Hers is a dramatic story of monsters and chains and rescue and stellar beauty.
She is forever in the stars.
