Keeping with my recent theme of stitching things that have a practical use, I have just completed another of Louison‘s wonderful biscornus. This was designed as a pendouille, no. 8 in that series. However I used it to make a biscornu. The finished piece is stuffed with hollow fibre and some lavender and can now be used as a lavender bag or as a pin-cushion. This one was stitched on a spring green 18ct Aida fabric. The threads were two strands of DMC cotton in dark golden brown and pale golden brown. As usual I forego the traditional cross stitch for a flatter half cross stitch. Here is the finished biscornu.
We are now about to leave to visit our daughter and grandson in Switzerland. So no more stitching for a couple of weeks. Though I do hope to spend a bit of time working out some designs for when I return. Happy stitching.
