Birthday Gifts, WIPs and a Finish

I bought this Biscornu kit with a gift certificate from Kim in the ILCS B-day Club.




This is what I've stitched so far. It is quite hard! The blackberries are made by grouping several beads together.



WIP Hardanger Project for the ILCS Hardanger Club this is Lesson 1 & 2.



I've had this leaflet entitled Heart of My Heart. I've had this leaflet since 1997 and never finished anything out of it because I needed several Kreinik Blending Filaments and Mill Hill beads in order to stitch anything in it.



With Gift Certificates from Vicki and Linda in the ILCS Birthday Club I was able to get the blending filaments and beads I needed!!



I finished "Victorian Heart" from the above leaflet.



Here is a pic after I cut it out.



This is a WIP entitled Forget Me Not Heart also from the above leaflet. It is going to barealy fit on the canvas as I moved too far over to start with. OOPS!!

Everything looks great. Did you know there is a fob chart that matches your Biscornu. I have both but haven't stitched them yet.

Sweetheart tree things are very pretty, but are pretty intense in the backstitching department! Your Castle SAL looks great! Part 4 is out, you just have to go to their website and get it, no email this time. It's nice you got some specialty stuff to do those patterns you've been wanting to do for so long! They are very pretty!

Fantastic stitching Melinda!! I love "The Sweetheart Tree" kit's and charts. Blackberry was one of the one's I thought about in June but went with "Tranquility" instead.
