February Smalls SAL Check-in

Good Friday afternoon everyone,


Thank you to Mary at Mary's Thread for hosting this fun SAL.  I just love looking at everyone's work.


I hope that you all had a wonderful, productive February. I just love the month of February for so many reasons.  My first child was born on the 6th and my wedding anniversary is on the 7th just to name a few. My second favorite holiday to stitch is Valentine's, you know Halloween is my absolute favorite. 

I have been working on some larger projects but I do have 2 small finishes to show you.

I decided to do a biscornu a month as my primary smalls for 2020.  I am going to pick out another one for January because I am dragging my feet to finish it.  Not sure why because it is pretty.  However, I did finish February's.  This is called Biscornu 482 from The Flossbox and you can find it here  I love her selection of biscornu's (she has over 600) and it was so much to stitch.

Here is a picture before put together
Here is a picture of it FFO'd

I used some 14 opalescent Aida from Hobby Lobby.  I love stiff fabric because I stitch in hand.  I also think it is easier to make into a biscornu than a softer fabric.  I had a scrap piece of fabric and made this simple freebie called Love Freebie by Atelier Soed Idee found here
I modified the design because I was running out of my scrap floss and I didn't know what color it was.  I still love it.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog.  Your comments always put a smile to my face.  Hope you have a great March!

    I like the Heart biscornu. Thanks for the tip about using a stiffer fabric. I will bear that in mind if and when I make one for myself!
