Twilight Biscornu

Our Yahoo group has been doing a Round Robin, a very unusual one. Everyone stitches up something to be used as a "small" but not the finishing. This time around, Laura stitched me Twilight by Indigo Rose. This was something I had stitched and made into a Biscornu for my daughter in law but had not had the time to stitch one for myself. It's a gorgeous pattern and stitches up so pretty. Laura chose some very interesting colors, and even sent along floss to finish it up. She used: Barrier Reef by Dinky Dyes (the spot in the middle), Twilight by Gloriana, and Red Plum by GAST. She sent a button that I used for the bottom. I used a bead for the top and filled it with pellets for weight. Didn't it turn out great? She did a perfect job with the stitching, and I love the colors she used.

I'm in the middle of stitching Frappuccino by LHN and will post a picture when I've gotten it finished. I also have the stitching done on my daughter in law's boxtop but haven't had the time to get it finished up with Easter. Will try to remember to take a picture before I give it to her.

Hope everyone had a happy Easter and that you didn't get too much snow or rain. Our Easter started out really nice, but cold. Nice and sunny, until mid-afternoon when we got an inch of snow which is already melted. YES! No shoveling this time.
