My very first biscornu!

I am able to share with you now some pics of my very first attempt at a biscornu pincushion. I chose this lovely Celtic laced hearts design from the Gift of Stitching magazine. It was very complicated to stitch as I kept losing track so there was an awful lot of frogging (unpicking) going on but I got there in the end.

 The making up of the biscornu was a lot easier than I expected, I used some gold twist thread that I had in my stash for the edging and tassels which worked well with the gold flecked Aida fabric.

I am very pleased with the end result . Would love to make more biscornus if I have the time – just need that knitting pattern for making an extra day – if anyone finds it please let me know!

    • Thanks very much. I have been collecting biscornu patterns for ages but this was the first one I attempted as I thought they would be complicated which they were not at all.
      Thanks very much for visiting my site and adding me to your list of blogs – it is lovely when people do that – nice to know that my inane stitching ramblings are being read and hopefull enjoyed! I have added your site to my blog roll as well.
      Thanks
      Alison
