Returning From An Unscheduled Blogging Break
I then stitched a birthday gift for Julianne with whom I'm doing a personal birthday exchange. Now, my finishing skills are somewhat limited so I chose to make Julianne a biscornu, a finish the I'm happy to do. I made Carol Tinson's Peachy biscornu, but made a few changes. I had been given the kit as a present and as I had not yet made it for myself did not want to use the fabric and threads. I therefore, switched the fabric from antique ivory 28ct jobelan to antique white 32ct jobelan. I swapped ecru perle thread to white and the cream beads to white also. I like this combination so much that I might in fact stitch it this way for myself at a later date. I also included one of Just Nans Garden Charmer pins, the bee, to sit in the biscornu.
