Seafoam Biscornu finished....

 I know Seafoam Biscornu isn't the original name of this design, but after I got thru with it, it's the only thing that kept popping into my mind.  The fabric that is the background for the pics, is also the fabric I used for the bottom of the biscornu and I took everyone's advice and used cream pearls for on top.  The fabric has a little bit of gold glitter going thru it, so I attached some gold braid around the biscornu to match and it looks great.  The bow is made up of 3 different ribbons from cream, gold and light seafoam colors.  
I also enjoy taking a pattern and making it into something totally different than what the designer showed and this one was alot of fun.  If you are interested, you'll find it in my store.
My next project is a Valentine's Day heart done in blackwork....
As always, Barbara

P.S.  I HATE BLACKWORK  so needless to say, there won't be a Valentine's Day heart done in blackwork.  Make one little mistake and it just throws everything off....it's like missing just one little period and finding out your pregnant.  Geez  ( and yes Thellie, I threw the dang thing out).  Anyways, it looks like I'm onto my next project which is a Drawn Thread design..."In My Heart"...

...which brings me to another question.  Let me set up the scenario:

You received from a friend a hand stitched item.  It's not exactly your cup of tea but you are gracious and say "Thank You".  Now you have to come up with a gift for someone who you know will never meet this person who gave you the needleworked item so you give the item to them.  Is this kosher?  What I mean to say is do you think this is acceptable?  I have a feeling this has happened to me and I'm just not sure how I feel about it.  I would love to hear your comments on this...ok I'm done now
I think so anyways.....and again, Barbara
