The making of this pretty little biscornu required some extremeley fine work and a lot of methodical counting to get it right. And yes, sometimes I did a bit of reverse stitching:)

I have used a beautiful rich cream 28 count evenweave hardanger fabric and a coordinating DMC Perle thread. The closter blocks and cream stitching are made with DMC Perle 8 and the centre panel stitches have been made with stranded cotton. The base is a coordinating pinkish apricot hardanger fabric and the 3 pretty pins are yours too.

I go through phases with my stitching and Hardanger is one of them. The good thing about Hardanger is that you always know when you have made an error because all of the closter blocks are in groups of five over four threads. Sounds easy, doesn't it?

All in all this is a dainty, sweet little piece that I have thoroughly enjoyed making.

Measurements are approximately 4.5" across X 2" deep

Apologies for the high cost of shipping from Australia, but I only ask what Australia Post charges. I carry all costs of the box, padded bags, wrapping and bubble wrap etc. If an item is less than 20mm thick when packaged it can go as a letter, otherwise it has to be charged at a small package item.

Most of my items are light weight and small so I can generally fit 4 or more items into one box and happy to hold off on shipping if you want to wait for more listings.

As always with shipping , any over charges greater than $1 will be credited to your Paypal account.
