Kell's June Biscornu

Design: Rhodes Butterfly Biscornu
Designer: Kell Smurthwaite, Kincavel Krosses

I thought I’d try a few specialty stitches this month. I pretty much stick exclusively to cross stitch and blackwork, so this was something of an experiment for me. I used:

- Rhodes squares
- Rhodes butterflies
- Algerian eyes
- Ray stitch
- French knots

I’m not particularly fond of French knots and thought it was about time I got over my dislike, so I decided to add quite a few to this design! I almost wimped out and used beads, but in the end, I plucked up the courage to go the whole hog and do the knots. I’m quite pleased with how they turned out and by the end of it; I think I’d finally got a bit more comfortable with doing them. I’m still not overly fond of them, but I know now that if it’s required, I can do them and not have them look completely dreadful!

I used two sparkly fabrics I received in a Polstitches grab bag. Both are 28-count linens, but one is a light tangerine colour, the other is pale lemon, and they moth have a slightly mottled effect. In order to have a bright and contrasting biscornu, I chose to do my stitching in bright pink and orange. I had bought two little gold butterfly buttons for the centre, but as I decided to stitch over one instead of over two (as I had originally planned), they were too large for this project and I used two orange beads instead. Those little butterflies will definitely get used at some point in the future though – they’re too pretty to leave!

So, here I am, half way through the year with half of my biscornu finished!

Kathy's May Biscornu with an attitude!

For May I decided to stitch up Barbara Ana's "Frogscornu" biscornu, and used a Silkweaver Solo I had in the stash. It looked "swampy" to me! I love the look of "frog scorn" on his face, and hope he scares away the frogs that visit way too frequently!

Hi Everyone

The biscornu's are looking fantastic I am loving the different colours and especially all the different beads which have been used in the centres and cannot wait to see the combined results at the end of the year, everyone is doing so well.

I have set up an exchanging blog called Stitch it and Pass it on , if anyone would be interested in joining, details are on the blog.

Remember if anyone has any problems or questions or would like to join this blog, I am still about monitoring.

Happy Stitching
Tracy xx

Belated post! Kathy's March and April biscornu!

I have been very busy with house repairs/painting and finally got to post pics of my last two biscornu for March and April. May is in the works as I write.

For March I stitched the Winter Wonderland Biscornu from Cat's Whiskers and Dinky-Dyes.

For April, it was the Luna Park Biscornu from Dinky-Dyes as well.

Kell's May Biscofleur

Design: Blackwork Biscofleur by Kell Smurthwaite, Kincavel Krosses
Materials: White 14-count aida; DMC 310 floss; black tassel; black ribbon; soft toy stuffing

I thought I'd give a 15-faced biscofleur a try as I'd made a regular 15-sided biscornu before, but admired the "tulip" shape of the biscofleur. It was a lot simpler to put together than I had thought it would be.

I designed five blackwork faces and stitched three of each, with the exception of the fifth design, of which I stitched only two and replaced the third with a simple blackwork border around my name and the date.

The designs will shortly be available for download on my design blog (click on Kincavel Krosses above).
