Anyway, where were we? Oh right, two over two, 32 count! I've temporarily deserted biscornus for humbugs which are smaller , therefore quicker and easier to put together. So far don't have one that I stitched to show you, alas, as it's apparently going round the Horn to reach Canada but I live in hopes that it will arrive soon! Here is the one Crystal sent me from beautiful British Columbia, a perfect choice for this time of year. It's from Just Nan and I love it, thanks, Crystal!

Goodness, my photography and placement definitely doesn't do the little guy justice, as the photograph insists on going sideways between my computer and the blog. Well, you get the idea!
What's next? Well, had to slide in some biscornus......

These next three (I forgot to photograph the fourth one, of course) were all part of the Please Pass the Biscornu 2010 exchange. I am unable to give you a link to the blog as the blog owner, as I've mentioned before, deleted the blog a couple of months ago! Such a shame as there was some gorgeous work on there.
Florences's blog, an entry on 23rd December 2008. I have made it twice now and really want to make one to keep!
This one is called Japanese Biscornu and is designed by Antonina Taskaev, regrettably I did not save the specific link so can't take you directly to this freebie. I must get better at saving links to patterns. Maybe you will have better luck finding it than I did just now.
This last biscornu is an adaptation of a Theresa Wentzler whitework ornament in her freebie section. Don't delay though, as I'm not sure how long this site will be up and running! I used Carrie's Silks in Thanksgiving.
Another easily identifiable picture of the WT preparing to go out on leaf patrol, he worked so hard on Sunday clearing all the garden around the house and on the roof - I am blessed to have this man as my husband.
Finally, I'm leaving you with a little "teaser", a change is coming to the life of Mr and Mrs WT (again! so soon!) and I'll tell you more next time. Leave me a comment, they make my day and I read every one!
