A first: biscornu!

I finished my first ever biscornu!

This is a pattern by Durene Jones posted as a freebie at the Lakeside Needlecrafts SAL Facebook group.

All supplies came from my stash. I used 32 count "Charcoal" evenweave; glow in the dark DMC & two Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe threads; and embellished with purple beads and two black 'crystal' beads. Beading the seams of the biscornu was probably not the best thing to do on my first attempt, but it eventually worked out.

So pleased with how it turned out:

A belated September finish

I was so close to finishing the stitching on this last weekend, but ended up doing other things instead. If the orange looks blinding on you...
