Mini Biscornu and Prairie Schooler ornament finish

I have just finished my first mini biscornu together with a Prairie Schooler Christmas Ornament for the Christmas Challenge blog. The pattern leaflet for the Prairie Schooler is Christmas Day leaflet number 134.

Finishing instructions can be found on my tutorials blog here

The biscornu is a freebie pattern that can be found on The Floss Box.

Edited: I seem to have lost the photos on this post, I will see if I can find them and repost eventually!

Stitched on 25 count dublin lugana linen fabric using DMC colour 321 satin thread

Mill Hill beads

Happy stitching everyone, thankyou for visiting!
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.

    I love the mini biscournu. It must have been difficult to finish, being so small.
