I’m about to show off something that I am extremely proud of, a finished object of my own design. I’ve been seeing these biscornu pincushions all over the place and was immediately taken in by their charm. The geometry nerd in me was intrigued by the construction, which turned out to be much simpler than I expected. The new cross-stitcher in me is thrilled that I was able to come up with such a fun, yet simple design all by myself (Look, mommy! Look what I did today!). Here she is:
I also made a little scissor fob to dangle from my brand new and shiny Gingher Stork scissors. Aren’t they fab? I do believe that having beautiful tools and details makes the domestic arts more enjoyable.
I’m currently working on the finishing touches for a pattern of the biscornu. All I need to do is insert the charts into the pdf and do a little bit of proofreading. It should be up on Etsy soonly.
