Lilac and think of England...or how many more socks you need to darn. Hopefully this little Biscofleur will make the job a wee bit easier to cope with.

A Biscofleur is a 15 sided pincushion and is a variation of a Biscornu - loosely translated to mean 'horned' or 'odd-shaped'. There are two ways to sew a 15 sided one and of course, I chose the hardest because I'm always up for a challenge.

This is made using small squares of Aida on which I stitched lilac and pale purple designs and then I embellished them with glass seed beads. I then attached them to each other in a mind-boggling order which inevitably results in the air turning blue and needles being thrown across the room.

It is filled with pillow stuffing, measures 3" across and 2" deep and is very touchy feely tactile.

*Please note that this IS a hand-made item and may therefore have the odd pulled or missed stitch somewhere.

Although I may list other Biscofleurs in different colours/variants, this one will not be repeated.

The price reflects the extortionate costs of cross stitch materials and not my time, otherwise the price would be 10 times that given.
