where we show off the beautiful designs we are stitching from the sadly defunct online magazine The Gift of Stitching. We have lots of blog authors so keep scrolling back to see all the beautiful pictures!
I made this biscornu quite some time ago as my contribution to the rather ill-fated exchange group, Please Pass the Biscornu 2011, ill fated as the owner of the blog disappeared within a month or so of setting up the exchange AND deleted the blog! Despite this setback we all, I think, managed to complete our year of biscornus and I received some beautiful ones. This was sent to Mayte in California (and from whom I stole the picture!). For some reason I did not use the beads as suggested so it was fairly plain. I made it again for the daughter of a blogging friend and this time did as Christine suggested and used beads. It was a much "girlier" version and have to say I loved it, as did Miss D, the recipient! The designer is Christine Wilkins of Alchemy Stitchcraft and was featured in the June 2008 biscornu edition of the magazine.
