cross stitch: birdy

(no subject)

I don't really have anything to post about today. I went to the Knit and Natter and was given a match-box full of really small cute beads that everyone thinks would look really good in my biscornu.

Currently, I am stitching a keyring (portable) and a very large thing (not portable) which was for bbd's birthday (in November, last year).

biscornu, for non-stitch people, are (very addictive) pincushions loved/cursed/made by cross-stitchers. The word is French for weird shape.

I like cross-stitch. A lot. If you didn't know already.

If you want to have a look at my stitched projects (which are always lovely, but certainly eclectic), I have a nice tag

If you just want to see how much I can swear while stitching biscornu,
here is a post of biscornu-angst

I must have a finished one of the blighters in here somewhere.

Quoth me, circa 2006:
Firstly, all I know about Stitch and Bitch-ery comes from The Grand Atlantis Stitch and Bitch by pru (at least I hope it's by pru). Secondly, I can't knit. Thirdly, I thought it was a really good title for this entry.
I need to find this - SGA and wool sounds good clean fun!?
