This first one is with Caron Wildflowers Delphinium and cream accenting.
This one here is white with blue accenting.
These little ones take about 3 hours to do. Now I am ready to go do the 3 1/2" ones.

The blue biscornu is one that I did a free ornament pattern for and then made the bottom . The red one is the Pointsettia Biscornu from the JCS Ornamnet 2008 issue. The designer is Kitty and Me. I used 32 ct Mint Green material, DMC red (4200) and green(4045) for the pattern (I think that is the green), Mill Hill 02011 beads.

Sorry it has been so long since I have posted here. I always forget to. :op I seem to have enough problems remembering to update my own blog. Anyway, I do come here to read and look. :o)
I have had 2 recent finishes. One was a birth record for my new little great niece. She is the first great (niece or nephew) on DH's side of the family. I found this Hello Kitty chart on a freebie site several years ago and had it saved on a cd. I thought it would make a nice, quick, girly birth record. :o) It did stitch up pretty quick. In the picture it isn't framed yet. I just stuck it in there without the glass in the frame so I could take a pic. We'll see if it goes in that straight when I do frame it. :op (yeah, it's still not in the frame)
I also finished an ornament for an ornament SAL. This is a freebie from Stitchy Kitty (click on name for link) called Santa Paw. I actually got 12 ornaments stitched! (not finished though.....next year)
Hugs & happy stitching!

Well here is the top to my red biscornu. This took me about 2.5 days to do. This is the Poinsettia Biscornu designed by Kitty & Me found in the JCS Christmas Ornaments 2008 issue. The floss is 4200 (red) and 4045 (green). The beads are Mill Hill #02011. The pattern called for white but I decided to change it.

So since that was finished I just had to start the red one. And here is my progress on that one tonight. I am using DMC Variations numbers 4045 (green) and 4200 (reds).
Not sure which one I like better. I think it is the red one.

This one has been in my WIP pile for so long it's been there, or who made the chart.... Now that I'm done with that stocking, though, I have the opportunity to work on stuff that's been cast aside for a while before I start with the Christmas SAL for next year....

Finally I have all three designs done twice. I put the last stitches in tonight. The piece is now drying and then I can back them and make them into cards and ornaments. I should have this done tomorrow so that I can take them to the craft show on Saturday.
Off to work on my baby blanket.

yes, I know it is Tuesday but I didn't get a chance last night to post pics.
The top pic is TW The Storyteller and I stitch on that Friday nights. Then it is my Quick Stitch weekend LK Autumn Boxer , which is taking a little longer than I thought it would. And last is Glory Bee's BYOB. I am hoping to finish the LK tonight and then BYOB sometime soon lol.
