I do stitch large pieces ....
but most often, I prefer to work small'ish'.
.... and of course, I like to play with these smallish pieces.
Often, I get carried away and fly with an idea,
creating more and more!
My wonderful daughter took all of these group shots
of my eight Biscornu designs.
|Biscornu is French for ...|
what else would you associate with moi ...
quirky odd shape.
While I don't claim to be oddly shaped,
I have definitely been labeled 'quirky'!
|A jumble of color and texture!|
[Center is Provence, across bottom is Lily Pond,
Swirling Hearts & Mardi Gras]
|Probably my two favorites,|
Provence and Knot Garden.
I loved the fabric I created for Knot Garden so much,
I painted a version of it on artist canvas.
See upper left corner of blog home page.
|I designed matching fabric for each canvas.|

Lily Pond, Knot Garden, Swirling Hearts,

|Provence Biscornu is loaded with gobs of color!|
|Swirling Hearts Biscornu shimmers!|
Mardi Gras ... proves you can do a lot with
just three colors!
|As I mentioned above, I think this one will|
remain my favorite.
it's one of the pieces in my life that the stitches
seemed to flow out of my hands and onto the canvas.
This was the first, inspiration was from a pashmina
I was given from Egypt.
|Lily Pond Biscornu, color and calm all in one!|
