Finished Biscornu

Yay I got the stuffing yesterday while I was in town and came home and quickly stuffed and finished my first ever biscornu!!!! I'm really proud of myself. I think it came out great! But my one question is... How do you get the stuffing more in the sides/corners than in the middle? I tried to stuff the stuffing into the corners but it seemed to all bunch in the middle and made it a bit harder for me to do the button.

Happy stitching!

Biscornu update

First I want to thank Parsley. I was picked the winner in Melody's giveaway. :) Yay! Parsley is such a sweetheart. If you don't already follow her you should she's such fun to read.

I also want to thank Crystal for helping me with tips for stitching my biscornu. I don't have any of the fiberfill stuffing so I need to wait til Wednesday when I go into town to pick some up to finish it. But here are the pictures.

After I got the 6 sides done on the biscornu I picked up my "secret project" and stitched for awhile. Then I noticed I had the freaking thing turned the wrong way so my stitches aren't right. Argh! So I need to frog and restitch on that today. Can't wait til I can share it with you all.

Remember awhile ago me ranting over a strawberry Italian ice I had made? How great it was? Well it taste horrible in comparison to the pineapple version!

I've been dying to bake/cook something lately. It's just been way to freaking hot here to turn the oven on. So last night my dad was trying to figure out something he could take to his school picnic today. (It's a reunion for the entire small school he went to, which is now a museum that he volunteers at.) I volunteered to make a cheesecake for him to take. I also decided since we cut up a pineapple yesterday to make the Italian ice also.

Here is my completely sugar free (well Splenda) made cheesecake with homemade blueberry sauce. Yummy Yummy!

I also made a smaller cheesecake for John and me to have today.

I was also extremely bad yesterday. I started another new project. So I've got the Tiger.... the secret project... Emily's ladybugs... and now

I decided I really want to try to make one of these. I've gotten one side done minus the beads.

I did change the colors and i'm using white aida. But i'm thinking it looks good so far and it's just for me to try to make one and see if I like it. Well i'm off to start the other side.

Happy stitching!
