My love for Mirabilia designs came when I first laid eyes on the Winter Queen in 1995. I still remember how it felt the first time I saw that pattern. She was beautiful, elegant, regal and mesmerizing and I knew I had to stitch her right up. Here she is in all her glory:
I loved every stitch I put into her. I didn’t even mind the Whisper thread because it gave her dress that fur look around the edges. The beads were so beautiful and sparkly.
She will always hold a special place in my heart as she was the beginning of a love for the most beautiful patterns to come from Miss Nora Corbett.
