Here it is only the end of August, but since I've been relaxing a bit after being ill, I thought why not design a little biscornu for you to stitch for the Holidays.  I haven't done the back yet, since I want to stitch the front myself and see what would look best for the back.  I hope you will enjoy this little design.  If you would rather wait for the back then I should say I will have it done for end of September at the latest, I hope. lol  So enjoy and hope to see some of your completions on your blogs or whereever you place a pic of your completed designs.   Happy Stitching everyone!!  :)
