You can embellish it with a variety of coordinating beads form the frame which stands behind this elegant emissary of autumn. Her hair is sun-kissed with honey highlights and adorned with flowers.

This floss woven woman was inspired by winter storms and Danish fairy tales. Patterns of beads and sparkling stars adorn her heavy cloak. Her trusty Reindeer companion is equally adorned in festive winter swirls and dripping crystal beads. She looks so strong and graceful doesn’t she?

4. The Raven Queen

This Queen is full of gothic glamour. With her plunging neckline on her fishtail dress, she looks like she is thinking up a punishment for someone who has wronged her.

Regal in pale periwinkle blue satin against a serene white background, this cool beauty’s upswept hair is decorated with purple violets beneath a beaded coronet. 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.

7. Titania, Queen of the Fairies Chart

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.”

8. Queen Cross Stitch Kit
