Giving something new a try

My first biscornu:

This was loads of fun and may become addicting...The design was a freebie that I downloaded from somewhere last December, but I didn't save the link. It's called Quaker Time, if that helps. And I used DMC 4210 and 4240 on 14 ct. Salem cloth. I thought to use the Salem cloth because it's softer and I thought it would be easier to manipulate as I turned those corners, but now that it's all said and done, I think linen would have held a crease better.

Well now....back to Tree of Life!


  1. Lee! I love it! Its a beautiful design, I love the colors and no one will know this is your first! I've never heard of Salem cloth, what is it? Aida? Evenweave?

  2. Nice Job!!! Congratulations.

  3. You did a wonderful job! Yeah! I still need to make one.

  4. Great job! I need to make a biscornu too for the finishing challenge, I haven't a clue what I want to stitch! :o)

  5. Well done! Love the bright colors!
