My First Biscornu



I just finished my first biscornu ever, and I am pretty happy with it. It isn't perfect but I like it. I scanned it the best I could considering I don't have a digital camera. I will at least not be afreaid to make another one.

How pretty! I just stitched this piece up and turned it into a biscornu as well. It does turn out so pretty - doesn't it? And I love the bright colors you chose!

Lovely biscornu, with the perfect button to match. Be warned, they are pretty addictive after you have made the first one. hehe

I LOVE the colors! Really pretty.
I am new to the world of stitching and have been browsing various blogs to try and gain some knowledge and get some tips / ideas. I originally started with a stamped, then counted “kits”. I’m working on my 2nd chart and have noticed some big differences in floss types and quality.
My Cross Stitch Mentor has told me that I’m ready to graduate from Aida, but I really like Aida. Maybe it’s just beginner’s comfort???
If you would answer my question… What type of fabric or fabrics do you prefer and why? Brands and counts?
I would appreciate any advice, thanks!

Craft-i-leigh- I have been stitching for many many years, but it has just been since this summer that I got up the nerve to try anything but aida. I thought it would be hard to do but after I got used to it-which didn't take long at all, I actually prefer it, although I still stitch on aida as well. I like Monaco and lugana to work on. I still don't know a lot about the different kinds yet. i like 28 and 32 count.

That is gorgeous! Could you tell me in which month that one was posted at Tantes Zolder? The site is so huge and full of patterns I couldn't find it.

I really like your biscornu. I have been dying to make one, but I can't decide which one I want to do. Thanks for checking out my blog. I just started and am learning as I go.
