My Biscornu Arrived
An envelope from Germany was in my mailbox yesterday. I think our family has given the mail carrier here more unusual mail than anyone else in the apt. complex!
Inside was this wonderful bee & flower biscornu AND a matching fob, Tentakulum overdyed thread, a piece of linen, an Isabelle Vautier chart (my first), and a postcard from the sender, Gaby.
Gaby, I am so pleased with everything, especially the nature theme of the biscornu and fob. I saw some objects on a blog that were the exact shape of this fob. The person had made them in bright colors and then set them in a bowl and called them "Fabric Candy." I searched and searched through all of my bookmarked blogs but could not find that website again. Could you please post a picture of the shape of cloth (rectangle or square) needed to make this?
