Tiny biscornu's!!



A small quick finishes. These two tiny biscornu scissor fobs for the Yahoo group monthly ornament prizes that i offered to provide for 2010. When i offered to do this for the group i thought to make different small finished pieces but until now were all tiny biscornu's. Haven't had much time to be more creative for other finishing techniques.



Just finished the march black today and now...i wonder if i do the April one next to it or under the January block. Does anyone have done these serie into one piece? I am curious for any picture of this serie if it is finished or stitched into one piece.

A few weeks ago i sent out a couple of boxes of some older crafts but mainly cross stitch magazines, i've only asked for the postage to be paid but if possible not in cash, just any crafting materials like threads or fabrics. Here's what came to my mailbox recently. Thanks so much Carine and Janina. I love them all!



I hope everyone is having a good week. Thanks so much for stopping by and all the kind comments. I realy appreciate them all.

Wow, they are soooo pretty. Very dainty and very effective. Well done!

Irene said...

Cute biscornus ! The L*K looks great, how will you be finishing it?

Dee said...

The leprechaun is ADORABLE.

As for the next placement, I think you could do it either way. I have not been able to find a picture of them all together.

So, think of it this way.

Do you want a long picture? Do 3 to a row, 4 rows down.

Do you want a wide picture? Do 4 to a row, 3 rows down.

Really wide? Six stamps done in two rows.

I think whatever way you choose will work and look terrific!

Very cute little biscornus. The LK designs are so cute. They make a great yearly collection.

Heather said...

I love your little biscornus Mylene. I wish I could make mine look like that.

I have those LK ones, but haven't started on them. I did one as a card for a friend's birthday.

By the way I'm back on blogger again :)

Deb said...

This biscornu's are so pretty and so TINY!! My goodness, I don't think that I would be able to put together something that small.

Your Lizzie Kates are adorable. I haven't seen this done all on one piece, but I'm sure that you could stitch them in whatever way you liked best - four across and three down, or three across and four down. Both would look very nice.

And get mail box packages. You had to be smiling when you received them.

Hello Mylene,
Those biscornu's are so cute. Great mail you received. The Blackbird Designs looks an interesting book. Happy stitching.

Lesleyanne said...

Gorgeous biscornu's. Love your L*K - I think I would probably do as others suggested 4 x 3 or 3 x 4 whichever you want. Lovely new stash.

Edit said...

Your tiny biscornus are lovely! :) And the LK is great too. I think it depends how you want to finish it. Do you want to frame it? Prefer long or prefer wide? Or finish into something else, like a pillow?

You received great things :) I am sure we will see them again soon as you start to use them :)

Have a nice weekend!

Annette said...

Conny said...

You have been very busy stitching, Mylene. These tiny biscornu's are cute and the LK stamps looks great. If you ask me I should stitched April under January.

Brigitte said...

Whenever I come to your blog you have some lovely new finishes to show.

Alice said...

What sweet biscornu's Mylene! I have never seen them that small but I am sure they are more difficult to make. The stamps are just adorable. March reminds me of my husband and HIS pot of gold lol. Great idea with the exchanges.

All those ornaments are so small and so cute! especially that two biscornus. Lizzie Kate Stamps are beautiful, I love the February stamp, because it's in pink color and it's also my birth month. I think whether to place the April below January or beside March is depend on what finishing you want to do with it. :) Have a wonderful weekend.

leuke biscornu's!
Ik zal de SAL vermoedelijk ook in 1 stuk maken, 4 rijen van 3 lijkt me wel leuk, maar ben het ook nog niet zeker

Pretty finishes! Great swaps.

Carol said...

That is so nice of you to make monthly ornaments for your Yahoo group, Mylene!

I love the little finishes and your Lizzie Kate stamps. I've stitched January and March, too, but they are sitting in a drawer somewhere. Yours will look so nice o one piece of fabric :)

Carol's Stitching said...

I am stitching the LK pieces and I'm doing 3 across and 4 down. Figured it would be broken by quarters of the year. I love your biscornus!!! I'm working on finishing up the cross stitching on one and will be putting it together sometime in the next month or so. Wish me luck!

Julie said...

The L*K stamps look wonderful, i dont think it matters how you stitch them, i guess it depends what you want to do with them when they are finished.

Love parcels you received in exchange for the magazines

Cute biscornus
