TA DA!


I have always wanted to make a biscornu, but have never gotten around to it. There always seems to be so much to stitch and so little time! As part of our planned projects for the year, My EGA chapter distributed one side of a biscornu chart in January, and the distributed the second side on February. I decided to join the group doing this project. We were to have it stitched by the March meeting, which was last evening so that we could begin construction of the biscornu.

The chart was designed by one of our members, Annie Belcher. I stitched it on 36 count cream Edinborough linen with with one strand of Royal Jewels Waterlilies over two threads with some Mill Hill petite glass beads and two tiny buttons.

I started the construction at the meeting, and finished it later on at home. I am quite pleased with the results.

I am a big fan of biscornus for many reasons:
1. you can try out new fibers on a biscornu
2. you can use up bits and snippets of expensive silks and specialty fibers on a biscornu... too much to throw out ... but not enough for kitting up a normal sized project.
3. you can showcase antique or unusual buttons on a biscornu

So, welcome to the club ... love your biscornu.
