yeah!!! 2nd Biscornu

Happy Friday!!
Yipeee!!!! I finished my 2nd biscornu and am happier with it then the first and am sure my 3rd will be even better :)



I had purchased a piece of black 28ct fabby for my 2nd CDC awhile back. I thought I would try a small project like a biscornu. Boy! oh! Boy! Am I glad I did becuase I will not be stitching BAP like CDC on it. It would be way too stressful for me.
I am still plugging away slowly buy surely on ATS.
I really need to pick up AAFG.
We have had so much snow (I just love it) 11" the other day, 1"-3" tonite and a Albeta Clipper moving down from Canada (gotta love them) on Tuesday?
Hubby just got home with pizza, gotta run...
Have a great stitchy weekend!!

P.S. On that Noah's piece there is no sign of anything on it to tell me a thing about it. I asked the seller about it but all he said" If you appreciate something like that you can have it for 3.00 hmmm... yeah I appreciate it Thank You very much (grrrr)

Congratulations on your finish! I love the way that colors pop on the black background, but it is definitely a challenge to stitch on. I contemplated stitching CdC on black, but am glad that I decided not to :)

I really need to *start* AAFG...one of these days :)

I love your biscornu! Ive never made one before.
I stitched something on a dark blue recently and found it really hard, especially at night.

Stitching on black looks so great - but it strikes terror into my heart! Your biscornu is lovely. :)

Yay! Great job Ranae! What color is the floss because it's very pretty on that black :o)

Did you see the new four season tree sampler that is a companion piece to your AAFG? I LOVE IT!

Great job for your 2nd finish. You know the old saying the more you do the better you get. The pink really stands out on the black. I know its hard sewing on something dark but sometimes it is worth it. - Sandra.

It's gorgeous, the colors on the black are so striking. I can see why you wouldn't what to do a BAP on the black though. Black fabric makes designs look so wonderful, but it's so hard on the eyes. Loved the Noah's Ark find in your previous post, very cute.
