Besides quilting, I just adore designing counted cross stitch patterns! I first found about about the biscornu in the early 2000's online, and since then I've been designing my own. I've probably made over 100. Fair warning - they're super addictive and great to hang as ornaments on a Christmas tree or all over the house. They also make lovely sachets. For a tutorial on how to finish a biscornu, I highly recommend this site: http://own-two-hands.livejournal.com/4186.html BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY cross stitch SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 3 5/8x3 5/8 inch square.
