Biscornu and another win for me!

Hi Everyone,

So don't forget to enter my giveaway here.

I couldnt believe I won another of Laura's giveaways, she was having a mini prize for her 270th, 280th, 290th and 300th comment on her blog. Well I was number 280 and Laura sent me this adorable little mouse that we've named squeak.

Laura also sent me a little present from her day out at the Festival of Quilts at the NEC.

Sorry about the blury photo. I think my camera is on it's last legs *sigh* There was some lovely flower fimo beads, cute green bow buttons and a butterfly charm, a lovely variagated hand dyed thread in lime green. I also have a fabulous green crochet hook. There was also the lovely hand made felt and the green fabric which will look lovely in my hexagon quilt when I start it.

I also made a biscornu for me using an amazing hand dyed thread called Luna Park by Dinky Dyes. Now you know my fondness for using varigated threads in blackwork. I first made this little biscornu for the giveaway from a pattern from here just using one of the squares. I was so pleased with it that I  did one for me too and that makes the May biscornu. I also started the bottom of the June one as I did the top...well in June would you believe. I'm hoping to finish the bottom today and maybe even stitched up too.  Anyhoo here is my Blackwork May Biscornu.

Well that's it for this post. Thanks for popping by. Hope you all are having an enjoyable bank holiday. xxx
