Halloween Exchange from Annette


I received my HoE Halloween Exchange from Annette today - she sent me this biscornu that she designed... what a neat finishing technique - there are four seperate pieces on top and four on the bottom (I forgot to take a photo of the bottom, but there is a spider in each of the four areas on the bottom) - so cool! And she sent me great goodies too! Thank you so much Annette, I just love it!

Is anyone interested in a pair of the newly released Gingher Roberta scissors? My DH just got his order in today from his source, and he has 4", 5" and 8" pairs all in stock right now. You can visit his online store, and then click on Scissors in the menu that comes up on the left on the site - all the sizes and low, low prices will come up for you :-)

Stitched on today: Finished a gift, and started CE Autumn Exchange **Mailed HoE Halloween Exchange

You have gotten some great exchanges lately. The biscornu is just too cute and clever. Wonder if we could talk Annett into sharing how to put the design together?

What a lovely gift from Annette!

Oohhh - I see that Mike has 3 types of the limited edition Ginghers - I can feel my collection growing as I type!

Hi Carol, your goodies are lovely. The biscornu is not actally a biscornu. It is a 'banurukotti' and directions for making one can be found here:

What a great exchange! The finished piece is really creative.

Does Mike plan on carrying any more of the DMC Marbelized scissors, by any chance? The Ginghers are a little out of my price range just now, but I quite liked the look of the DMC Golden Copper marbelized ones. Just wondering...
