Conversation With Nancy Biscornu by Mattsma Conversation With Nancy Biscornu by Mattsma
I was chatting with *Katjakay yesterday and while that was going on I was making this biscornu. It occurred to me that I needed a pin cushion so I made a quick one just for me Only one side is cross stitched since I felt I didn't need two sides done :boogie:

4"x 4" biscornu
Pattern from [link]
Three flosses used: DMC 4030, DMC 4240 and Weeks Dye Works 2333
Austrian Crystal flower
White Evenweave fabric

They are amazing indeed! I once designed one myself with ladybugs, but forgot to take a picture before I gave it away. :noes:

That is awful! It always bugs me when I don't take a picture of something that turned out super cool and it's already gone! I hope you make another with that same pattern :D

They are hard to poke, but this one...well...it took me a few minutes of indecision, but I now use it all the time:D

Normally I wouldn't dream of doing something like that...sticking a big fat needle into it and making holes, which is why I only stitched the one side. If I get around to it I may make another using the same pattern and do a two sided just so I can stare at it lovingly :D
