Another biscornu finish!

Whilst at 'The Railway' this weekend I was able to finish the Valentine's biscornu. Here it is

I was also able to start the Thistle biscornu designed by Sharon (The Purple Thread). I'm doing this on lilac linen using the left over silks from the Spring Arbor. I was getting on like the proverbial house on fire when last night at ten o'clock I noticed that I had made a MASSIVE mistake. I ended up having to frog half of the front side. Not a happy bunny, as they say. What has made things even worse is the fact I am using left overs, I had to raid the ort jar to get sufficient silk to finish certain colours. Anyway I am almost back on track now.

This week it's the turn of White Nights. I'm hoping to finish part 1! I think Sitchery Doo is starting the Hawaiian Mandala this week so we will be having our own mini SAL!

HOW can you stitch so quickly? I love your Biscornu they're fab - your bowl is going to be gorgeous when it's full and it will be fun to sort through all the different designs - a lovely touchy-feely piece of art work as well as "eye candy". We'll have to come and visit so I can play nice!

Was googling "the sweetheart tree" and landed on your blog. Wanted to say that you have some very lovely things here.
