A Biscornu and an Award

I heard that Rochelle has received the biscornu I made for her for the Tiny Treasures Exchange, and I'm so glad she likes it~~ After I mailed it out I remembered that I forgot to put down an e-mail or my blogger page in the note, and I hope I didn't cause Rochelle too much trouble to find a way to contact me...

I choose a traditional Bulgarian motif I found on the web to stitch for the biscornu, and choose blue and greed threads for the main part cause I know that's Rochelle's favorite colors, and added a punch of orange for the flowers. I also stitched our initials and year on the back. It took me a while to find a perfect button, but I think this one really goes with the whole design~

This is my very first try making a biscornu, and I have to say I was a bit nervous when I first started it. But at the end it was so much fun and I was really happy when I saw the finished product~ Even my DH Dr. Sam was quite impressed with this little one!! I can see many more biscornus to come in the future~

For this reason, I'm giving this award to all of you who are always an inspiration to me!!! Keep on being creative~~


  1. Theresa I love your Biscornu. Mine is going in the mail tomorrow with a few other things. I am great at making stuff but really bad at mailing stuff. But tomorrow is my mailing date and my dh is putting in the mail for me. And you so do deserve that award or else I wouldn't have given it to you --- so there you go girl! Lots of Love Patti xxx

  2. What a darling biscornu! I love it and you're brave. I still can't bring the courage to try making one!

    BTW, I finished The Other Boleyn Girl tonight. It's fantastic! I highly recommend and you should check it out once you get your card. I've already checked out the sequel. Will probably take me two months to read. These books are huge!
