Biscornu and Hardanger Angel

Whilst playing around with the Mary Wigham charts I realised that some of the motifs could be turned in to a biscornu.

Mary Wigham Biscornu
The colours and the fabric used are those recommended for the sampler. I added some motifs used in other areas of the sampler in the corners and in the middle of the medallion.

Progress has been made on the Hardanger Angel. She has wings, which now require beading, and part of a body.

I need to get my act together with this one or else I will be doing it on the school trip to Alton Towers on Tuesday. Stitching and this will not go!

MW doesn't know what she's started. Your biscornu is very pretty. What sort of button have you used in the centre? Not from your mum's stash I hope, she'll have nothing left!!
Your angel's looking good hope you get it finished in time. You'll have to fly with it. (sorry about the pun.)

Biscornu has worked really well. Looking forward to seeing the angel completed.

Hi Jen,

Thanks for all of the MW corrections. I also like the Biscornu!
