There are a lot of wonderful blogs out in cyber space where you can find inspiration for new projects. As some of you may have noticed, I have been working on UFO's since the beginning of May. My UFO-pile also includes crocheting, embroidery and knitting in addition to the quilting ones. Today I've finished two works. One crocheted table runner which I intend to put crosswise over the table as place mats, ad then there is this little cutie.
Originally it was a couple of swatches I made to test out the blackwork embroidery technique. I had planned to use them as center blocks in miniature quilts, but then I came across Veronique's impressive embroidery blog, where I found the link to the directions for this biscornu. The word biscornu (according to my French -Norwegian dictionary) means something with two horns, or something irregular or bizarre. I don't think it's bizarre, just cute. So....
Merci Veronique pour cet idée merveilleuse! Ton travail est splendide et j'admire tout. Je te souhaite une bonne weekend!
