Back to school!

Last Wednesday it was 'back to school'. This time the start of the Autumn Term was made more difficult for everyone as a friend and colleague died after a short illness during the holidays. Her funeral was the day before we went back. So to cheer myself up and to add a little colour to what was has been a dark couple of weeks I stitched Faby Reilly's 'Back to School Biscornu'.

Here is the English side finished.

Here is the French side.

Just for completeness this is the mirror photo.

The chart for this biscornu was a freebie. You can get the chart here. I did it on 28ct Misty Blue linen with the designated floss.

That is beautiful....most children would be proud to receive that.

Oh, how sad :( Lovely biscornu.

So sorry to hear about your friend. Your biscornu is so cute!

I think this rather nice. I like the buttons , they really finish it off well. Don't know where you find these quirky buttons though. Sorry about your colleague. Keep that needle going at its normal speed and we'll be seeing all sorts appearing. Happy stitching.

Hi Jen,
I don't usually leave comments on articles about my designs... but I can't resist it, on this occasion. You've done a terrific job on it, and I just love your choice of fabric. It really works, in blue.
I am so sorry to hear about your friend... but glad this design helped cheer you up a little.
All the best
Faby Reilly XX
