Biscornu Exchange received and a finish


I received this wonderful package today from Mylene (Netherlands). What a great surprise!! I am a member of the Hooked on Exchanging group and this was the Biscornu exchange. Mylene made me a beautiful biscornu and a biscornu scissor fob as an extra. She also included some lovely ribbon and buttons. I love everything and am thankful for the beautiful work. Thanks, Mylene.

I also finished another of the CCN pieces, this time the Daisy square. I changed the color of the word but am not 100% happy with it. Originally, the word was stitched in the green color, but I was afraid it would not show up very well on the fabric. The other two I have stitched have the words stitched in the same color as the flowers, so I decided to keep to that pattern. I'm just not sure. I do love the blue house on this fabric though. And the dragonflies are just too cute. I will finish this as a pinkeep also. I have already picked out the fabric and trim. I just need a little bit of free time.

Thanks for visiting my blog. By the way, if you want to visit a very funny stitching blog, visit WB Stitches. The link is to the right. She is such a funny person.

Your CCN pieces are so gorgoeus on the fabrics you have chosen. Congrats on the finish. Love your biscornu exchange-it's great!

I like the color for the Daisy word. You could do it in yellow, the center color of the flowers. That would be pretty too.

What a lovely exchange! Daisy is simply too cute!! Your colors look really good I am always so scared to new colors! Thanks for the compliment I can't wait to tell the hubby as he is so sure he tells better jokes!!
