I think i'm addicted to biscornu :) It's for my friend, few years ago I tought her cross stitching and now she loves xxx too :)

It was easier to do this one, no french knots :) All biscornu by Faby reilly are amazing, full of detail and easy to stitch- i'm sure this one was not the last one!!!. You can find them here

Some changes done- not stitched the back side, had to finish it fast

Design: Faby Reilly "Poppy Paperweight"
Stitched on white evenweave 32ct
DMC floss, beads

Thanks for visiting!

Have a great weekend and happy stitching :)

My First Biscornu

Back from France with another finished piece. It's my first biscornu. And finaly I've learned to do french knots (I had to go to Franche to learn them ahahahah)
I'm really proud of myself, thought to stop in the midle of work. there're so many french knots....
Here it is, what do you think?

Lavender Bouquet by Faby Reilly
Stitched on white evenweave 28ct 
2 over 2

Now I started another biscornu called "Biscornu Gourmand", pattern from a most inspiring book for biscornu "La Passion des Biscornus"
You must buy this book :)
 Maybe the only thing I missed in it, is explaining how to stitch them, something like step by step, cause for begginer it's not so easy to understand :)

love shopping!

 After I discovered how to upload pics using my phone, will share more often (but still hoping to fix my pc). Just let me know if photos are too heavy,  will resize them ;)

Look what I've got in France last week! I was looking for some linens or any other beautiful fabric in the market (where selling all antique stuff) but found this floss- 45 dmc skeins for just 18 €+few skeins that were opened & used for free (in Italy costs 1.80 €) so lucky me!!!
Some of them should be old, they have different packaging as you can see in the photo. They were not using bar code yet as well :) and same number floss are slightly different.

And some cross stitch magazines,  I adore French designs! Will I live forever? ...

Sneak peek at what I'm stitching right now :)

Hi :) finally managed to upload a photo! I am using Internet on phone and its not good as pc. First days of May had fire at home and it melted from the heat... but mostly I'm sad for all the stash I've lost..
Luckily just few days before accident I've finished winding all floss on bobbins and put them in a box. So they're safe :)
The good news are that I finished to stitch this cute cat. Last 10 days we were in France,  started a new project. Something with roses.  Will post soon!
Thanks for reading,  come back soon :)

Last days I had "fun" winding all my floss (and still i have some unwinded, waiting for more bobbins and a box). It's so comfortable- i can easily find any colour i need in a second :)

Now I'm stitching "Spring Bouquet" by Margaret Sherry

Got tired stitching HAED, so you will see small designs I work on ;)
Don't know what will do next, but will have a big choise- subscribed for "Cross Stitch Crazy" and "the World of Cross Stitching"

My little helper :) Hope one day she will want to learn xxx stitching ehehehe

Have a fantastic week !!!
