I love them. I make them. You love them. You make them. But when somebody asks what its purpose is, we all start to falter. Yeah, they look great in a little basket... I suppose it could be a pincushion... They're perfect gifts (for friends who then get to figure out what to do with them.)
Ah, the biscornu. As I said, we love them, make them, share them.
You're on my newsletter list, right? This is the Celtic Swirls chart that you get when you sign up. Steff used 18 count cream aida and picked shades of brown (anchor thread numbers 308, 310, 360 and 891) for her exchange partner who loves browns. These really do make sweet little gifts and I'm sure her partner was pleased. Nice job, Steff!
So functionality be damned - stitch a biscornu today!
