Biscornu Exchange Made it
Judith let me know that the biscornu exchange that I sent her made it safely to the Netherlands. I only mailed it on Monday so it was a pretty quick travel!
I was at the glass studio one day, and fooling around with making some buttons. I ended up with a purple transparent button with purple and green spots on it. When I got home, I discovered that it went perfectly with SNC's Fairy Quilt Cottage - one of my favorite fibres, so I stitched a blackwork design with that. The fabric is Country Stitch in Merino. I really like the way that this design came together. (The back of the biscornu only has a regular (shirt) button on it - the shanks on the back of the glass button are a little too thick to use two of them for one biscornu.)
