Unveiling the disguised biscornu

It seems I didn't have to post a blurred version of my March biscornu as it arrived in plenty of time to show it to you. Here is my first 15 sided Super Biscornu.
Freebie Blackwork Biscornu

I did not fully stitch one of the panels so I could get my signature in. It's soooooo tiny, I just loved it.
1 over 1 signature

The first photo shows the true colors. I had a really hard time putting this in the mail to Spain, now I have got to do another one! Hope you like it and thanks for looking. I also wanted to say that I am enjoying seeing all the beautiful biscornu done by the blog members! You are all so creative it is truly inspiring. Can't wait for April!!

Gads, forgot to add: stitched on a Ziewgart tan linen with WDW Rust floss, some tortoiseshell beads left over from a previous project and an antique faux–leather button on each side from Mom's button box.

  1. Yoyo, this is one absolutely fabulose piece!

    I see that you used the same blackwork patterns as I did for my March 15-sided biscornu, but yours looks different. And you chose not to stitch the border around each motif, which even confused me for a second ("hey, where did she get those motifs, I didn't stitch those", I thought.) The motifs do look different without the border.

    The signature looks great too.

  2. Yes, I really wanted a more "open" feel, so I took out the border and also moved the seam line out about 4 stitches from where it should have been and I think it worked well. It is certainly different than the others I've seen -- and some of them are gorgeous, including yours' which I liked very much.

  3. Very nice you must have a lot of work to make it.

  4. Yoyo, I just saw your 15 sided biscornu. It looks great! Your Mom's faux leather buttons are a perfect compliment. The stitching is so perfect. I don't know if I would be able to give it away. Congratulations
