Biscornu



Whilst I was on holiday it was my sister Helens birthday, so I wanted to make her something she had to open whilst we were away, so I made this wee biscornu by Atalie, it is the May one, I love those Atalie designs they are so lovely.
This one I stitched on 36ct white linen, using Kaalund silk thread.



I forgot to mention that my wee neice Amy has completed her exchange with Katie and she has posted some pictures up on her blog if you would like to pop over and have a look, again as doting aunty I am so very impressed with her finished piece, she is so very clever.

Katie and Amy did smashing exchanges! Katie was thrilled to bits and I think Amy was too! What fun!

Su,
What a lovely present you made for Helen. I saw it on her blog and she was thrilled with it. it's so delicate. The roses are beautiful and i really love the colours.

Amy's exchange with Katie is really exciting. She made such a pretty needleroll and Katie's gift to her is lovely. How nice for them to be able to start their own needlework collection :>)
