Here if my second biscornu. Well, Beatrice and I worked on this one together. We have a Thursday stitcher named Judie who has been stitching Good Night, Sleep Tight for months. It is a very large piece and has cows wearing quilts in a pasture. She has said she never wanted to see a cow again. Beatrice and I decided that she needed a souvenir after all that work. I stitched one side, Beatrice the other. Beatrice put it together while I was in Texas and we gave it to her last Thursday. She loved it and says she will have to hide it from her daughter.


Here is Carol's house in her neighborhood. This is a house from Just Cross Stitch magazine April 2003. The design is from Brown House Studios. I think it suited the neighborhood. It was fun to stitch - all done with one strand. I spent the rest of my time working on my Book of Little Stitches re-doing the area that I had to rip out. I am back to where I started.

Your Biscornu is really cute. I've yet to try one. Are they difficult?
