Biscornu exchange

I know 3 posts in 3 days, what has come over me! The wonderful Jubilee coverage on the television has provided a perfect background to stitch too. This is just a quick post to show the biscornu I finished this morning for a Craftbubble swap. I'm very late getting this done as my M.E has left me unable to do much at all. I received my biscornu from Ivory last week and here it is.

Here is the bottom of the biscornu and the lovely little tag that was attached to the paper it was wrapped in.

So here is the one I'm sending to Ivory. The design is from an old book called 2 hour Country Cross stitch although there are very few designs that fall in the 2 hr category. 

The bottom was just a simple pattern in the same colours and it's turned out much better than expected.

Here's a new picture of my collection, I've missed the April (still in progress) and May biscornu deadlines, but by the time the year is out I will have the 12 I set out to make for me.  I've decided that I can't possibly have too many biscornu!

Thanks for stopping by I'm off to finish the coaster for another Bubble exchange and organise the huge June to-do list whilst I watch the Carriage Procession. God save the Queen!


  1. What a beautiful biscornu exchange! Both recieved and given are gorgeous. Your basket is looking fabulous!Lots of room for even more though ^_^
    Sending hugs for you and hope you enjoyed the Jubilee coverage ( I thought it was all beautiful especially the service this morning)

  2. I love your little biscornu collection! Congrats on the newest addition. :D

  3. Gorgeous biscornu's, love them both! Hope your ME is letting up a bit now, keep smiling :-)

    I'm thinking I need to find a basket for my biscornu as they are all over the house and I'm running out of places to put them!
