“Biscornu Set in Two Colourways…” This luscious set of “Smalls” is so beautiful, dainty and elegant! The 5 squares around the outside of the biscornu include some beautiful Hardanger cut work & weaving. On the violet and blue Biscornu it is done on a separate colour light blue linen, using white Perle Cottons. The tops and bottoms include Bargello, using delicious silks and metallics, as well as tiny blossoms made of silk ribbon, and some sparkling gold beads. There is even a tiny scissors fob to match. One side of the fob is worked with the Bargello and tiny flower, and the other is worked with the Hardanger motif to match..! With all the various colours in this design, you have many matching backing fabric colours to choose from. You will also learn a few specialty stitches. There are Silk Ribbon stitches, Bargello, Kloster Blocks, wrapping bars and Dove’s Eyes, as well as Lazy Daisy Stitches for leaves.
