Third Biscornu? You're probably all wondering what was her second; did I miss a post? No you didn't, my second was the Collaboration project for the NeedleWorkers MarketPlace, and here are some photos of the finished project.
Each designer exhibiting at the show has designed a motif 20 x 20 stitches. This will be
their free gift to everyone attending the show. Their "thank you" to you. Collect all 15 and you can have another fabulous biscornu.
The motifs visible here are by Brenda Franklin, Carolyn Mitchell, Joanne Gatenby, Laura Dickson, Britstitch, Christine Allen, Jeannette Douglas, Roxann Blazetich-Ozols, and me. Don't miss this wonderful opportunity to visit with each designer at the show April 2nd and 3rd.
I have one last surprise for everyone this week. When I began designing the 15 patterns for my 15 sided Biscornu, I had them all nicely laid out on one sheet, and I loved the look of them all together. This got me thinking, why not stitch them all as one design. All they needed was a cute little border to connect them. These patterns have been a big hit in the shop, and even Monika has been bitten by the Biscornu bug. So even though she has already stitched them all twice, she loved the idea of a sampler and was anxious for me to design the border. I had wanted to wait until after Retreat, but she couldn't, so here it is. Her variegated silk is actually one of my favourite, Gloriana's #050 Blue Grass, and the fabric is Zweigart's 28ct Cashel Linen, Platinum.
After Retreat I will post the border. You may have also noticed that the sampler has 18 squares. I wanted to include an initials square, without omitting any of the squares. So I added another row of patterns. These will be posted in the weeks following the border.
Sorry to make you wait another two weeks, but next Friday I'll be busy setting up my booth at the NWMP, and starting all the festivities for Gitta's Getaway retreat in the evening.
See you at the Market, or here in two weeks time.
