My first Biscornu and stitching news
I am currently stitching my first Biscornu, it is a Christmas design, and I have finished stitching the Priarie Schooler Christmas Ornament, I will post pictures shortly.
The Christmas Noel design at the top of the page was completed a number of years ago, it is
Celtic Christmas by Lavender and Lace, I though it would be a good idea to show it to celebrate the season!
Thankyou for looking, Merry Christmas everyone!
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.
