Munday, munday......

Well I learned something new today by being a nosy blogger.

I love counted cross stitch so when I find a blog of a cross stitcher naturally I'm interested. And today I learned a new term.....Biscornu.

The dictionary says that a Biscornu is a French adjective that means "that which has an irregular form, with projections" or "complicated and bizarre." 

When I saw a picture of a Biscornu, I realized that I had seen them before but I didn't know that they had a specific name. 

I found some instructions on how to make this eight sided Biscornu here.


It looks a bit tricky but I think I might try to make one. I don't have any fabric that's suitable so I'm going to be forced to go fabric shopping.........oh dear ;)


Take care:)

  2. I love biscournu! They can be used for so many things...sachets, pin cushions, ornaments, small ones as fobs, etc. You'll be hooked after the first one! :D

  3. I am always amazed at those who can cross stitch. I am embarrassed to report, I have trouble sewing on a button... :(
