Now I can reveal..

I made this biscornu for Tracy (maddixie) as a special thank you for the lovely Eterna threads she sent me. She got it today so I can now reveal it. It is stitched on 28 ct Quaker cloth using VCs Flame silk. I filled it with lavender so it smells nice (well cos I don't have any other stuffing really lol!) DSC03504 DSC03505

Been doing a bit on Cheryl's Bouquet but still not touched my Mermie and time is running out for me to meet this month's deadline with it. Just to make things worse Fudgey has given the link to a gorgeous mystery stitch :

I really want to do a mystery and this one is soo lovley but it is so similar to Patchwork so I think I might pass on it. I would like to do a traditional sampler mystery or something more "folksy" I think. Does anyone know of any up and coming mysteries? By the way, would love to know what your favourite sampler designers are. Which ones are the "Must Stitch" ones? I reckon Little House Needleworks and Carriage House are pretty good. Thinking about doing a Long Dog too. Any suggestions for a future shopping list lol.
Happy stitching.

Your Biscornu turned out great, what lovely soft colors. As far as samplers, you named the three designers that I really like. I didn't use to like samplers very much, but lately I'm finding that I really do like the style. Funny how our tastes change and evolve.

Your Biscornu is lovely, Hazel! Beautiful colours! Oh, I love so many Samplers... it's hard to choose just one... anything by LHN or CCN as you mentioned... Carriage House Samplings is great as is BlackBird Designs and Hands to Work, The Workbasket and Homespun Elegance to name just a few... :-)
