Ta Da!!

April 16th I posted a teaser...."wait until you see what I turn this into".  So, here you have it, a Biscornu...a ornament or what you will.  The name is derived from a French adjective, meaning skewed, quirky or irregular.  Right up my alley!  I've always wanted to design and make a Biscornu.  And Voila! I have, actually, I've designed seven as an exclusive for The Needle Works in Austin.  They'll be run as a club starting in January 2013!  Each hand painted design will come with a complete stitch guide by moi as well as thread kit & fabric for finishing.  Fabric also designed by me to match the stitched design.  Watch for future updates as I stitch my way through each design.

Contact The Needle Works at for more information about signing up for this exclusive club.


  1. Me too!! I've wanted to design, stitch, and assemble one for a very long time. They fascinate me. I saw the fifteen sided design on your blog, very cool!
    BTW...glad you came back. Stepping back is just what one needs to do sometimes in order to go forward.


Thank you for popping in.
Have a great day,
