Blackwork Biscornu

This is called Blackwork Biscornu by Angie. Instead of doing it with black I used DMC color variations.
I put a flower bead in the center and stuffed it with crushed walnut shells.

Good Finds....

Since it was so hot my husband and I decided to go looking around at some antique shops yesterday. We drove over to Hartselle, AL. They had quite a few stores and I found this rocker. I love old chairs and rockers and we couldn't believe they only wanted $40 for it.It is in pretty good shape, not rickety like some we've seen.I put it in my front room and  hubby has been enjoying sitting in it. We'll have to see if I can get him out for some more looking one day.

Just a little late..


 in posting  my TU SAL jar for July. There's a little progress but not alot of pics to show, since I'm still doing the biscornu's for Please Pass the Biscornu exchange. 

 I found this design at Rainbow Gallery.I t is charted needlepoint designed by Laura J. Perin Designs for Rainbow Gallery. I love all forms of needlework and want to learn needlepoint one day, (I can do some of the stitches) I decided to try this. I really enjoyed doing it. I decided to use what was called for in the pattern  because I really liked the colors, so I had to order the floss.  Now to decide how to finish it, whether to frame it or make it into a little cushion.Maybe even a box top.

I've got a couple of pieces in the works I need to finish and I am waiting on more threads to arrive to do another charted needlepoint design on there website.

Other Stuff

This is some of the other stuff  I do sometimes, so since I have been posting my cross stitch finishes and posting about some give-aways, I decided to show a few of the beaded ornaments I have made. These are all done using delica beads.The ornaments on the far right were made with seed beads. The Santa in the background is also beaded.These are just some of the ones I have made that I have.

This is called Crazy Quilt. It is also beaded using delica beads. I used a small frame I found at Hobby Lobby to frame it.
