Another biscornu and some framing!

Hey y'all! Happy Summer Vacation! Hope everyone is finding time to stitch.

This latest finish for me is from Sweetheart Tree's line of Teenie Tweenies, and came with all the embelishments. It is called the Strawberry Quilt Block. I used a 28ct pink fabric, Weeks thread (the border), DMC, and a pink glass heart bead for the back (which is left plain).....

....and here is the biscornu! Many small square designs work well for biscornu, and they are a breeze to finish.

This is a gift I finished stitching earlier this year, and is now framed. It's a name tree from M Designs for a new cousin in the family.

I stitched this freebie from Papillon a few years ago, and took advantage of a frequent shopper discount at my LNS to get it and two other peacock motifs framed in matching black frames. I have a nice blue wall in the home office in need of some decoration!

This one I finished last year, a design called Alla Turca by Pelin Tezer. It is stitched on Aquamarine linen from Silkweaver, over 1! I adusted it somewhat for balance and added the gold treasure braid to the Weeks Peacock floss.

This is the third peacock, a freebie from The Workbasket ladies called Peacock Repose, stitched on tea-dyed linen with Weeks fibers.

I have one more to take a picture of, and one ready to be picked up still, both were finishes this year. I am now working on part 6 of Christmas at Hawk Run Hollow, and sorting thru the stash for projects I can take on vacation soon!
