Nashville Preview - Gillyflower

Our last preview is Gillyflower:

Gillyflower - Nashville Needlework Preview 2022 - October House Fiber Arts Journal

A little serendipity was at play with this design. I worked on the pinkeep first, but I kept thinking how great the flowers would look on top of a biscornu. So I did that, and then mostly as an afterthought I put the bird on the bottom. But how cute are they flying around there with a string of blue?

Biscornus are much easier to make than they might seem, if you’ve never tried one. But if you haven’t, once the pattern releases I’ll have a little tutorial that guides you through the finishing. You'll be able to find it under the Tutorials section right here at my website.
