Some Finishes

I've done it. I finished cutting out the Hardanger piece I previously blogged about. I was truely scared as I was cutting it out that I might cut a thread that wasn't supposed to be. Whew am I glad that didn't happen, lol. But here is a picture of the piece now.

This is the overall view of the piece. Sorry for the crooked look of the picture.

This is a picture of the center. Look at all those Dove's Eyes.

Here is a picture of one corner. Sorry for the crookedness of the picture.

Now onto another finish. I've fallen in love with biscornu, so much so that I had to make one to see if I could. Well I did, lol. The pattern I got at The Floss Box. The pattern I chose reminded me of the Colorado state flower if you were looking directly at it. The colors speak of the Columbine.

This is a picture of the front of the biscornu.

Here is the back of the biscornu.

I thoroughly enjoyined stitching and making this piece. I like things I can finish on my own. Saves me money on a finisher.

Keep on Stitchin'....

Love the biscornu. Not sure I'm brave enough to try hardanger but it sure is pretty.

Your hardanger is stunning. I've never done this work and find it amazing.
What a sweet biscornu. Aren't they fun to do!

The Hardanger is simply gorgeous! I found my way here from Casey's blog and wanted to say hello.

Hi - Your hardanger is beautiful!
I read your article on washing before cutting - never tried that, thanks for the idea!
