A view of the biscobourse

Yesterday I told you I had started a Biscobourse. This is a very bad photo of the base part. I really love the thread and have high hopes that this will turn out well - the photo isn't the best. Perhaps its true to say I am better at stitching than photography!! Also had word from Ellen in Singapore that her package had arrived. Ellen was my partner in the HOE Winter Exchange. I had a great deal of trouble with this one. the thread was the DMC Pearlescent and it was so difficult to stitch with. But the finished result pleased Ellen and thats what counts. I forgot to take photos so have "borrowed" this from Ellen's - do go and have a look yourself at her blog. It is stitched on confederate grey 28 count line, backed with a wintery white patchwork fabric and edged with a chain of small winter white beads.

  6. I love the biscobourse - I looked it up and they are so neat!! I can't wait to see the finished project.

    I am in awe of the Winter Quaker. I just love snowflakes and equally hate working in white! You did such a super job on it. It's inspiring.
