Okay - where do I start.
First let me say that I realize that some of the
photo's could be blurry - sorry about that. My eyesight has gotten
so bad that in order to see the monitor I was having to have
my eyes literally just a few inches away from it. My eyes
have gotten so bad that I am having surgery next
month. To be brief - I have worn glasses since the 3rd grade.
I am so excited about this surgery!
Because after next month - NO MORE GLASSES!!
NO MORE CATARACTS!
The left eye will be done first and then 2 weeks later the right
The doctor seems to think that after this surgery that
it will correct my glaucoma issue. I hope that it is so.
So this is my last posting on this blog until next month.
Anyway the patterns for this biscornu and the side of the
yellow bucket will be posted when I return.
Everything below on this posting will be given for the giveaway.
This biscornu is hard to name. so its name is simply 'BEES'.
What you see below is
the front. It has green tufts of grass, 4 cute bees and
blue flowers in different sizes. I wanted the flowers
to look strewn across or like they were blowing.
Flowers come in different sizes and shapes.
The sunflower button in the middle is little. As always
I am doing something different and this biscornu is no
different. This is the first one that I have ever stuffed with
cotton! So this biscornu is not as crisp as my other ones.
However I stuffed it until I couldnt get another piece of
cotton in there!
This is the back. I hope that you like it. Again some of these
flowers are different than others. It is intentional.
The little black & yellow bee is a cute button.
Here is one of the sides.
Again - another side.
Here is the top of the yellow bucket. The fabric is
a pretty pink color with a touch of green and blue.
There are 3 black button bees that have been randomly sewn
around the checked fabric. Below I have hand-sewn a wide
strip of white aida cloth onto the yellow - but not before
I cross stitched on it. There are a total of 4 bees on that strip.
I hope this photo is clear. The green tufts represent
grass. Different flowers as usual are stitched all around.
2 bees are turned to the left and 2 bees turn to the right.
Here is the inside of the empty bucket.
Abracadabra - here is what is coming out.
First is the chatelaine. The large bee that you see
is a needleminder. You can detach it and place it on
your project when needed or store it here for safe
keeping. This way you always know where its at.
There is a large sunflower on one side towards the
bottom and on the other side there is a black bee
button. The little ring is to hold your scissors.
Now the pincushion is of black toile. The other side
reverses to 14ct white aida cloth. The black button
bee is just held in place with a pin. So you can move
it somewhere else if you like. The white ribbon is
perfect for displaying your charms.
The front of the needlebook shows another little
button bee. Its a large sunflower!
I am sorry - I have just realized that you cannot see
the black bee! However it is the same cross stitched
black bee that is on the biscornu. Whenever I give
away anything I make - I always give the needle
that I was using with it.
Here is a little cloth bag with the colors that I
used on all of the projects. And of course it is
accompanied with a little button bee!
