Finished A Biscornu

I finished a red & white Matrioyoshka Biscornu that will be a gift. It's going to be part of a set: biscornu, fob, scissors case and needle book. I bought scissors to include.

Tomorrow I go in to the hospital for pre-surgery x-rays and a fine-needle biopsy. I will have surgery, but will not know when until I see the specialist (in another ten days).

Lisa of The Primitive Needle Passes Away

I just read about this accident on Edgar's blog.
I stitched one of Lisa's Halloween freebies as a treat bag for him two Halloweens ago.

The article is here, from her local newspaper.

The stitching world has lost a fine designer and a hospital has lost a nurse. I hope her family decides to keep selling her charts, as a memorial to her.
