Being creative instead of on holiday in Florida!
Three Beaded Biscornu Pincushions
I made a promise to myself that if we were going to be at home for 10 days instead of jetting off somewhere warm, I would treat myself to a few days designing and stitching. With Issue 84 of Stitch That off my desk and on Vivienne’s, I have a clear conscience. It is funny, you know- I still see stitching as a treat that has to be earned….
The three designs above will be four if I can get the shape of my daisy flowers without too many fractional stitches – not happy yet! These three are ready now and you can see more details by clicking on Beaded Biscornu
Having not be very pleased with my first attempts at this decorative shape, I cannot stop myself now! My little Indian Twists pictured above are tiny versions of this shape made as scissor keepers and inspired by my trip to India last year. If you go to the shop and click on the image you can see close ups of the individual items. These are stuffed with Chinese raw silk which is included in the pack.
Well, back to the drawing board and tonight I am starting work on Fleur Antique – I am not telling you anymore as yet!
