Biscornu: long-armed cross-stitch
Before we come to the biscornu, there are just a few other things I need to share with you. First: there is now a dedicated page for my online embroidery class 'the Imperial Goldwork Course'. Here you will find all the PDF-handouts for download as well as all the Vimeo videos of the live-zoom-meetings. You can start the course any time you want.
And now: the biscornu! I was delighted when Gina sent me pictures of her biscornu showing some of the long-armed cross-stitch patterns from my latest eBook. Gina filled her biscornu with dried lavender. This is an excellent way of using these beautiful medieval patterns and stitch!
For those of you who would love to learn more about the long-armed cross-stitch, you can find the English version of my eBook here. And I have recently teamed up with Claire de Pourtales of Le Temps de Broder to come up with a French version of the eBook. Since Claire and I split the proceeds equally, you can either purchase your French copy from my website or from hers :).
Well done, Gina! Love the colours, too, since modern notions of 'good taste' and medieval sensibilities (more bling! more bling!) seldom go together. I might try this very same biscornu idea. Of course, a big thanks to yourself for putting this useful book together in the first place, Jessica.
Thank you Nancy! Yes, I might make one too at some point as it is such a good idea and the patterns are such fun to work :).
