And here it is, my first Biscornu which I really wanted to stitch!
This is just before I sewed two pieces together, this design is just beautiful, isn't this!
I really love this design and wanted to stitch so much since the first time I saw it.
But even after I've got this chart, I had no confidence to finish off as Biscornu...
After I've joined in Monthly Finishing Challenge, I've tried two new things so far, one is Needle Roll and another one is this Biscornu.
This time as I had this beautiful chart, I thought that it's now or never!
Anyway, here is a close up photo of Spider Web Roses.
I love Spider Web Roses very much, that reminds me - my first Needle Roll was also used Spider Web Roses, too!
I used Atalie Silk thread which my French friend Domy (she writes blog in English, too!) has gave me before, GAST and DMC, and stitched on 28ct DMC linen.
And I just have found a big metal rose at my usual local shop, and it was just perfect for this Biscornu!
This photo doesn't show the metal rose colour justice, but it's shinning and very beautiful in the real life.
For the back, I just added normal, big pink button on it.
And actually the square wasn't satin stitch in the chart, but I couldn't understand how to stitch by the introduction in French, so I just have done satin stitch as same as the front.
I'm so glad that I finally could stitch this design and could make Biscornu!
What will be the next month challenge?
I'm looking forward to know it, but at the same time a bit nervous, lol
I'm going to start "HoE LHN Exchange" piece from today!
And also will start "Workbasket Quaker Animal Exchange" in a few days!
Both of them, I have been thinking about how to finish off, all the time...
By the way, I bought funny thing yesterday.
Actually I had been wanting this from a long time ago!
There were human version, and actually I wanted the one from these version, but recently I can't find them at all, and all have been changed to animal version, so I bought dog one.
This is grass dog (I think I should be his godmother!), he is bald at the moment though, turf will come up from his head sometime later!
And I can change his hair style as I wish!
I'm going to report on this grass dog from now on when I update my blog!
Enjoy and please look forward his photo!
