I made my very first Biscornu just now. Actually I started it yesterday and just finished it now. It is stitched with silk floss from Vicky Clayton called Autumn Leaves and I just love how it comes out. And stitching with her silks is such a joy! I am a sucker for silks, and these are just wonderful. There are also some Mill Hill beads there for a little detail. Sewing it together was not as hard as I thought at first. Actually it was very easy. The fabric is 32ct Belfast Linen from Zweigart and the color is called Cognac. I have had this fabric for a long time, just never sure what to do with it. The pattern is from an old pattern book that my mother had in her stash with all very very old Icelandic patterns that have been found in old churches mostly throughout the centuries. I love that patternbook, and the other one that I also have with simular patterns, many of which are perfect for Biscornus :o)
My daughter Sumarrós is in love with this little pillow so I decided to give it to her. It was a nice practice piece for the Biscornu exchange that will be in September in my Icelandic stitching group :o)
