My first biscornu and lots of counter stitching

Here it is. My very first biscornu. I made this for my new friend Lynn . She has been very kind to me and I wanted to say thank you. It is stitched on 32 count evenweave and is stitched with WDW 2333 Peopria Purple. I had a bit of challenge putting it together but sure liked it when it was finished.
It took two weeks for it to travel to her. I could have driven it there faster. Our Canadian postal system leaves a great deal to be desired.

Beatrice and I have done a second biscornu together since then but I do not have photos yet.

I worked on my Little Book of Stitches or rather I unworked. The cross in the bottom right hand corner was out by 1/2 row and I did not discover it until I was almost finished that corner so my stitching time was spent counter stitching that whole area! I was asked where the pattern came from. It is from Gift of Stitching - August 2007.

Carol's house is done but I am waiting to photo until I add some animals to the scene. It is crying for a little something.

I am not feeling the greatest today. I have caught DH's cold and it is really knocking the heck out of me.

In response to the comment on my post 'Trellis...': Yes, I did show a progress pic a few weeks ago, I felt like it took way too long to finish. I am only doing one project at a time right now and am not employed, I still do not stitch all that much. Thanks for the uplifting compliment on it. It is in a Sudberry box, go to they have a lot of great stuff for finishes.

That's a very pretty biscornu. Congratulations on a perfect finish on your first attempt!
