Happiness is cross stitching blog

My first cross stitched biscornu finished!

I am so excited because I have just finished my first cross stitched biscornu!

Here are the pictures, I just love the little Father Christmas, don’t you?
I will probably stitch lots of Biscornus for a while!
The pattern is from Just Cross Stitch Ornament Magazine 2008 designed by Louise Henderson of Cherished Stitches.
Stitched on 32 Count Belfast Linen
Colour – light mocha
DMC threads
Mill Hill Beads
Swarovski Crystal in the centre
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.
