Mary returns

Although I have been stitching on Mary Wigham for the last few Sundays I have not posted any pictures as progress was not as great as it should have been. Here she is:

Mary Wigham SAL
I have made a small start on the vase of flowers, bottom left.

My handbag project has been a biscornu for October. I wanted to do one with a breast cancer awareness theme so after looking at the Stitch Pink blog I found a design which I thought I could change into a biscornu.

Breast Cancer Biscornu
The chart is a freebie by Romy in Austria and you can get it on the Stitch Pink blog's sidebar. I have stitched this on 32ct Belfast Linen, pearl flecked white, with DMC99 and DMC605. In real life,that is, without flash photography, the DMC99 looks more pink than this.

I also want to do a Halloween themed biscornu, also for October and a the moment it is a toss up between modifying the Just Nan Boo needle book.

Or doing this one from Faby Reilly

You can order this chart here.

Then again I might just do both!

MW is really coming along. I expect the centre part will take less time. I like the idea of the pink biscornu and hope some of your other members use the idea too. With the Hallowe'en go for both but I must confess I do like Faby's design.

Congrats on finishing the outside of your MW,it's looking good. Your Breast Cancer biscornu is very pretty and I'm sure it will look lovely when completed. I hope many others take up the idea.
Go for both Halloweenies. that way you don't have to choose. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
Happy stitching.
