Last night while watching the Antiques Roadshow I completed this Strawberry Biscornu. You might remember that I sent a "kit" of this to my Aunty recently. She was delighted and her wonderful letter of thanks inspired me to complete the construction on the one I had stitched. This free design from Gift of Stitching is just beautiful but were I to do this again I would use pure linen as this fabric (Lugana?) was not so forgiving during the construction. Anyway here's a snapshot of the top and sides of Strawberry Biscornu number one.
And so my holiday is over and I'm back to work tomorrow. This "stitching break" has been just wonderful and I am revitalised to finish the final quarter of my Historic Countries Sampler. Look out for the next update!
Have a good evening everyone
I have just recently retired from work. I love to stitch - mainly traditional pieces of counted work always in Linen and generally with DMC or silks. My other love is reading and I visit the local library nearly every week. My elderly mother lives with me. She is increasingly deaf and quite blind and in this blog is known affectionately as the DBEM.
