Ann's Orchard Needlework  

Fine Beadwork Embroidery Kits

Slate Blue

Sweet as Honey Biscornu


This quirky shaped cross stitch is much simpler than it looks. Two different counted cross stitch designs are stitched individually, from a colour chart, on Cashel linen, over two threads at 14 stitches per inch. The finished pieces of needlework are offset at right angles and when whip stitched together the shape literally folds itself. Japanese seed beads are incorporated into the whip stitching and a larger glass bead sewn in the centre to finish.

The kit contains; full colour instructions and charts, 28 count white Zweigart Cashel linen, Anchor stranded embroidery cotton, Japanese seed beads, larger glass beads and John James sewing needles.

The seed and glass beads may vary in colour from those shown on the packaging but they will complement the design.

You will need some polyester stuffing, lavender or polypellets to fill your biscornu.

Finished size approximately 10cm x 10cm x 4cm
