Valentine Biscornu - Linden Bee Designs

 
Design: Valentine Biscornu - freebie design available here
Designer: Linden Bee Designs (i.e. me!)
Threads: DMC in three shades of pink - I've used the "antique" colourway on the chart
Fabric: 16 count aida, grey but overdyed with tea by me.

My design style seems to have settled into incorporating words with little sampler motifs, and the word on this Valentine biscornu is "amour" ... seems a bit more glamorous ;o)

Again, I used some tea dyed aida to give it an antique feel and chose the colours to go with it. I thought about beading the edge, but it seemed a bit too much, as the borders are quite busy.

 

The middle is drawn in with just a single bead, which was quite fiddly!
