I received this beautiful St, Patricks Day Biscornu from Melissa in North Carolina. I was really surprised when I found it in the mail. This was for a swap that ends in March and she mailed it early. I am still stitching on the one for my partner.
It is stitched with sparkly gold threads and pretty shades of green. It has the cutest tiny green buttons in the center. She also sent me a dragonfly scissor fob On the back, she stitched For My Stitching Friend. I am so happy to think they belong to me. Melissa also sent some Saint Patty stickers, some green floss and a card so I can stitch my own design. Thanks so much Melissa.
I will post pictures of the one I am stitching as soon as I finish it. I am really having fun with these swa[s but I just realized that I have no Biscornus in my collection that I stitched for myself. I have a lot of them that I want to stitch so I guess I am going to have to squeeze in some more stitching time somewhere. lol.
This is the Tea Party Biscornu that I received from Joke in the Netherlands. I really love the design and the colors she chose. It is so dainty and petite. Her stitching and finishing are excellent. Thanks so much Joke for stitching this adorable biscornu for me. Also she sent me some delicious smellin tea from the Netherlands and a nice note.
This is the Tea Party Biscornu that I stitched for Amy in Pennsylvania. I haven't heard from her so I hope she has received it. I found the Tea Cup Alphabet Pattern on the internet. I don"t remember exactly and I used TEA Letters to make the design. I stitched it on some 28 count evenweave that I had. The teapots were supposed to be white, but I gave that up. Try to see white on white? My eyes were crossing. LOL. I enjoyed stitching it none the less.
I have won a PIF from Leigh at Dragon My Needle. I am agreeing to do a PIF on my blog. I wanted to get at least three people who agree to comment on my blog and I will stitch something for them in the next 365 days. They need to agree to Pay it Forward by doing the same on their blog. So far I have Barbara's comment. (Thank you, Barbara)I will be stitching something for her. If anyone else is interested, please leave a comment.
And as a last note to Leigh, I am working on my Totally Useless SAL. Can't wait to post my Pics.
Until Nex time
