Sakura by Alchemy Stitchcraft

Mayte's Biscornu
I made this biscornu quite some time ago as my contribution to the rather ill-fated exchange group, Please Pass the Biscornu 2011, ill fated as the owner of the blog disappeared within a month or so of setting up the exchange AND deleted the blog!  Despite this setback we all, I think, managed to complete our year of biscornus and I received some beautiful ones.  This was sent to Mayte in California (and from whom I stole the picture!).  For some reason I did not use the beads as suggested so it was fairly plain.  I made it again for the daughter of a blogging friend and this time did as Christine suggested and used beads.  It was a much "girlier" version and have to say I loved it, as did Miss D, the recipient!  The designer is Christine Wilkins of Alchemy Stitchcraft and was featured in the June 2008 biscornu edition of the magazine.
