Biscornu Exchange Part 2





Now, that my exchange partner has received her biscornu I can post a picture. This was the biscornu and goodies I sent to Myrna of Still Living in Wonderland She was my lovely exchange recipient. I stitched a design by Periphaeria Designs . It is called the tribe #1 and I stitched it on 32 ct lavender linen with Caron Waterlilies amethyst and a VC silk called midnight. I could not find beads nor buttons I liked so I ended up with swarovski crystals instead and I think they went very well with the colors. It was such a delight to stitch this for Myrna as she was one of the first to befriend me in the blogging world. So, that made my first exchange very special.

Myrna, says she loved it and I am very glad, because I loved making it for her too. I really enjoyed this exchange and thanks to
Becky for getting us all set up. Thanks to you all for the comments-as always they are so appreciated. You are the best!

I love that biscournu! I think the swvarski crystals look awesome. Before I read your entry I was wondering what sort of bead those were. Great job - I bet Myrna loves it.
