Biscornu and some Gifts of Grace photos

Sunday, August 1, 2010
You might remember some sneak peaks of this a few months ago, well it's time for the reveal now that it's been published.  It's my Harmony Rose Biscornu work cushion and scissor case.  There's lots of lovely bullion stitch roses with beads and charms for embellishment on green evenweave linen.


Here it is on the front cover of Australian Country Craft and Decorating - see it on the right - it's only small against the gorgeous quilt:


And on the inside:


 If you don't have access to our Australian magazine, then you can purchase the pattern here.

There's been lots of lovely stitching going on around the world so I thought I'd show you some of the wonderful interpretations of my Gifts of Grace blocks.

Here are Penny's with a lavender theme.  Aren't they just so sweet?


And Sandra has chosen to embroider the outlines instead of using applique.  Haven't they come up beautifully?


And here's Teresa's - aren't they pretty?


It's just great seeing how each one puts their own interpetation on the design. I hope you've been enthused to get started on your next one ... and I'd love to see some more photos.

Happy stitching!
