Kell's January 2010 Biscornu

Front and back views

Design: From 2010 Pattern-a-Day Cross Stitch Calendar (3rd December)
Materials: 18-count ecru Aida; Madeira silks 0801 12, 1003 13, 1803 12; white ribbon; snowflake buttons; Minicraft supersoft toy filling

My first biscornu of the year for my Basket of Biscornu challenge. I used only the central part of the design from my Pattern-a-Day Cross Stitch Calendar for 3rd December and chose to stitch it in Madeira silks in soft pastel shades of blue, lilac and silvery grey. On the reverse, I left one quarter of the central design unstitched and instead stitched:


I plan to stitch my name, the month and the year on each of my twelve biscornu.

The zig-zag border on both the front and reverse are stitched in two strands, but the rest of the design and the texgt is all stitched in a single strand.

Plans for 2010

This blog will be left running as a gallery to post pictures of biscornus (only), anyone wanting to start their own SAL or even exchange please feel free to do so or obviously anyone still wanting to participate in doing the Basket of Biscornu each month can also do that.

I will still monitor the blog so if there are any problems or anyone wanting to join please let me know or wanting to be removed. Also if one other person would like to be added as an Administrator as back up for me I would appreciate the help.

Happy Stitching
