My April Biscornu

This is the biscornu that I stitched for my April entry in the Basket of Biscornu SAL. This is a freebie design from the web. It has the word "esther" in the file name. I can't remember the site from where I downloaded it.

It reminded me of tulips open and closed, so I stitched them in two shades of pink. I placed green seed beads in the center. I'm sorry that the photo is out of focus.

Scrap Linen, Please

These are small motifs (from Dover Pub. Anne Orr design books) that I stitched on scraps of linen. I plan to make them into notebook covers, tiny box covers, and more. I'll applique them onto cotton fabrics or piece cottons around them to create different projects.

Send me your scrap pieces of linen! Two inches, one inch, half an inch--anything! I'll use them! Donate them to me instead of throwing them away.

Please email me if you have tiny linen scraps that you don't want. I'll email you my mailing address.
