This past week I visit my oldest and dearest friend at her new home. My housewarming gift to her was one she had requested, a biscornu. Ever since she spied the bowl of biscornu's at Gitta's Getaway this past April, she just had to have one. Not being a cross stitcher herself, I stitched one for her in her favourite colour - purple.
To my surprise I was not the only one bearing a gift. While packing for her move she had come across a photo she had taken of me at Gitta's, the original shop.
The floor space of the old shop was only about 1/4 of what we have today. In 1995 we would have been in this shop 9 years and already bursting at the seams. It was the following year that we moved just 10 shops down the road, to our current location.
