I have begun stitching in 1978. For the last 10 years, my stitching has been with "smalls". I love to use beads and ribbons and always looking for new ways for finishing. My email addresses is firstname.lastname@example.org.
My First Biscornu finishing
I finally sat down yesterday and finished a Biscornu. My favorite instruction on line is written by Mary Kathryn, http://lhfinishingschool.wordpress.com/biscornu-class/
. The majority of the biscornu have buttons in the middle, however I have a few designs that are perfect for this type of finishings that have designs in the middle. I did not have any luck finding small "transparent" buttons for the middle. The best thing I like about the Biscornu is the "dent". So Chrissie comes to my rescue. Chrissie has made a few gorgeous biscornu with beads and tassels, http://albums.photo.epson.com/j/AlbumIndex?u=4303498&a=32285226&f
This is a Just Nan small design, Victorian Floral. There are beads on the biscornu. I used the Irish linen from Joann fabric. I like the stiffness in the Irish linen which come in the tube and perfect fabric for scissor fob as well.
I am very happy with the finish and there are going to be more biscornu coming up soon.
