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 ;)
