Biscornu all corned!

The biscornu is done, stitched up, stuffed, may have another item stitched into the center, but I'll wait on that and see how I like it.  This was great fun, once I fathomed the architecture of it -- not half as tricky as I'd supposed.

So here are views, front, back, side.  I ended up putting a little embroidery area in the small boxes, after all, and saved my initials and the year for the back in the end.  And I am criticizing it already....not stuffed tight enough, or something.  But I think I'll let it rest for now and just see.





This was fun, and now I have to do some finishing work, my hated item, on other stitched projects.  I hate framing, finishing, stuffing, whatever has to happen for presentation, but as a sardonic artist friend, Stefi M. once said, if you want the joy of framing, first you have to suffer the misery of making art...

Very nice Liz. Rather than a button maybe a couple of nice beads for the centres if you decide to go that way. That will pull your stuffing together too and won't hide much of your lovely stitching.

the stuffing's already pulled together! it's stitched tight through the middle. I'm still thinking about whether it needs something more in the middle, though, since I designed the stitching to be seen. We'll see!

I can't help it - every time I see the word 'biscornu' it makes me hungry!! Yours looks very pretty, but definitely not edible.
