Januaryy Biscornu

I'm a little late in getting this one finished. It was done, but not put together. I used 18ct. navy aida and DMC threads and put a opal bead in the center. It is also filled with poly-pellets.

This was a free chart from Nic. She is trying raise money for the MS Trust through donations. Go check out her blog.

Another Biscornu

Here's another biscornu. I posted this one on Basket of Biscornu blog  for my February finish.It is called WDC in Blue by WDC Designs. It was in the June  2008 issue of The Gift of Stitching magazine.I finished it in the recommended thread but used jobelan instead of  aida, and stuffed it with poly-pellets. I added a bead in the center.

I have another one but can't show it, it's for  an exchange so I need to get it ready for the mail.Will post a pic of it later.

What is TU SAL?

I have been asked about the TU SAL. Yoyo started this and I saw it on her blog and decided to join in. Here is a little about it
Every time you are stitching throughout the coming year you agree to put all your "stitching throw aways" in this container. This may include but is not limited to:
  • regular Orts (thread ends)
  • little snips of fabric
  • broken buttons you were going to use on that little Lizzy Kate flip it
  • a bead or two from your Mirabilia design
  • worn out needles
  • the labels from used up floss skeins
  • whatever you like, as long as it is, or rather, was (LOL) going to be part of a stitching project currently underway.
  • you may include orts from any type of stitching project: cross stitch, knitting, crochet, whatever, but please do not include other craft leftovers such as paper crafts, rubber stamping, etc
  • and each month on the new moon  we post our progress.
  • Hope this answers some questions you had.It's just a fun little SAL and no pressure.

It's the new moon and time to post the TU SAL jar.I have made several biscornu's so I have some scraps of fabric to add to it along with a little bit of froggin I had to do. Hopefully I won't have any more of that.

Biscornu of the Month

This is the February Biscornu of the month by Pam at KittyandMe Designs. She is doing a biscornu of the month and since I seem to be addicted to making them, had to have this one too. I like how it turned out.

I've made this month's biscornu for Please Pass the Bicornu blog that I have joined .I can't show of pic of it yet, I haven't sent it off  yet, but when the recipient  receives it I will show it.We have to make one each month and exchange with another person. I'm having a good time doing this.
