Before showing my new finish for you I'd like to thank those who left so nice comments about my rabbit needleroll. I see many stitchers liked the idea of adding an extra piece of the fabric . Yes, it works all right in case your pieces of the fabrics are more or less identical in count and structure. Some of you asked me to try to add two extra pieces, well I am planning to, just let me think a little.
A special welcome to those stitchers who visited my blog and left a comment for the first time.
Today I want to show you a new biscornu which I finished yesterday. It is "Lilly Of The Valley" biscornu free design by Fabby Reilly ( you can find the link to her blog in Links). I liked the design the moment I saw it: lillies of the valley have been my favorite flowers since my childhood.
My family moved very often when I went to school. One of my elementary schools was very small, there were only 10 students in my class and about 20 students in the whole school. Behind the school there was a large valley and my teacher often took us there and we read stories, draw pictures or played there. Here for the first time in my life I saw the villies of the valley. The valley looked silver white when the flowers were in full bloom, it was a gorgeous view! It is a shame these flowers do not grow here.
Ok, back to the topic. The biscornu is stitched on 28 ct. Evenweave with DMC floss. There are some specialty stitches in the design, if you like French knots - the design is just for you , there are about 200 of them there, not less!
I started stitching the biscornu with the hearts and when they were finished I noticed how pretty and elegant the design looked at this stage and decided to use this motif for the back of the biscornu.
The biscornu is finished with green beads in order to add some green color for the back and to keep the same color palette. To embellish the corners I made dangling loops, some kind of tassels. Faby called them "handles", lol. Anyway, handles they are or tassels - they are sparkling and look great on the biscornu!
And some more pins, heart and butterfly pins go well with the biscornu.
Thank you Faby for such a pretty design, it was pleasure to stitch it!
Thank you for dropping by ,
