Well I didn't throw my biscournu in the bin. I thought it turned out okay and I will be attempting another one later in the year. Thanks to Lori for enabling me, I have already purchased a snowman biscornu chart by BarbaraAna and a few other designs from a wonderful site she told me about called Creative Poppy. You just pay for your charts then a few minutes later you can download them. I printed off the ones I ordered last night and I was very pleased with them. I;ve decided to stitch Happy Moood by Barbara Ana next, so I am off to get it kitted up so I can get it started soon.
