So, I'm following the Basket of Biscornu SAL, a month behind everyone else, and have been looking for a suitable basket to display my growing collection. Well, my Mum came up trumps with this, an early Easter present, a hand turned, shallow wooden bowl with a pokerwork border.
As mentioned in the previous post I had decided to do the freebie design from The Solaria Gallery as a Valentine's themed biscornu for February. I reckoned that my Mum had some dark blue aida in her stash, left over from an ocean cross stitch I did years ago, and I was right. So whilst at 'The Railway' this weekend I managed to stitch the first side.
I only used the centre motif as using 14 count aida stitching the whole design would have made this biscornu much too big for my liking. Even The Other Half, has said how striking this one looks. Anyway, I only have one evening left on White Nights before going on to the next thing in the rotation so I'm off to do a bit more!
