Autumn biscornu swap


Hope everyone is having a good weekend. It's been a quiet one so far, I've been on duty at work this weekend so I've had to go down to open and lock up. I did pop into town yesterday for beads and bells but the shop that does mill hill beads has stopped stocking them and the other shop had sold out of bells! Anyhoo I did pick up a couple of bits ready for my giveaway next month, so thats good.

Right on to biscornu... I've done a few swaps with Ivory from bubble and we decided to have an autumn swap as it's been a while since our last one.

I stitched the leaf quaker pattern from Kincavel krosses and decided to use a spectrum of autumn colours. Here is the top before I stitched it up.

I used a lovely sage green aida I'd had in my box for ages, it has little brown flecks in which made it perfect a it looks very rustic. So this is the top...

And this is the bottom. I used part of the design from the leaf pattern - just not stitching the leaves!! Ivory loves owls so I added this owl charm for her.

I also received my biscornu yesterday, it has so many little gold beads on it. the top has a pink star button and the bottom a blue one. Another lovely one for my collection :-)

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and were able to take a moment to remember our servicemen and women today. Sorry for the truly awful photos, it was these or nothing, in future I need to check the pictures before I send off my swaps. (slapped wrist). I'll be back in the week with the Christmas travelling box as that arrived for a brief stop with me this weekend.
