Hi everyone, it is sunday evening and the weather is a bit dreary here in the U.K.
I have an unusual post for you this evening !
When i went on holiday last week, i had an overwhelming urge to sew ?
So i armed myself with a biscornu pattern ! The word BISCORNU is french and the definition of this word is 'QUIRKY, ODDLY SHAPED' ! I have added tiny beads to the pattern!!

Biscornus are all the rage at the moment,in the sewing world........people collect them, swap them etc! So here are a few pictures of my 'QUIRKY CUSHION' ....... 
I can make these to order, if anyone is interested, please email me

Hi there, I have been looking at the challenge blog 'LESS IS MORE' and was so inspired by this genre, that i had to give it a go !! i stencilled with 'Big and Juicy' hydrangea inkpad, through an impressabilities stencil added some extra fine border peel-offs! Then i made a punched flower with a mini button for the centre. A vinyl butterfly with inset watercolour wings, and there you have it !!! hope you have a loving and creative day today................
This is my take on 'LESS IS MORE' ...... I'm entering this into the following challenges........
