Could this be the First Biscornu Received?

Hello, All!

I am posting to let you know that my wonderful Biscornu from SGVChicago has arrived! I was so shocked when my dear boyfriend brought it in from the post because the mailing deadline isn't until the end of the month!! It is just gorgeous--With so much detail and pretty bead embellishments! I thought to myself, "Oh, how could she bear to send it away when it is so pretty!" I will treasure it, you can be sure! I hope it won't be your last, though, and that you will venture on another for yourself sometime soon!

Ladies, can you believe it is her first ever?!

Look at all the charming embellishments!

The center bead here is a frosty rose with a blue gleam--how perfect to complement the design!

Look at the charming pins securing the baggie of silks! EEk! :D

And the gift! My first ever silk threads--and such a pretty green! How thrilled am I to use them--but first I must finish my own biscornu! Fear not, dear recipient, I have not forgotten you! Though I am tempted to go and play with these silk threads, I will first do a good job making your gift!

It was made for you with great pleasure....I have another secret! I also designed both sides of it! Enjoy the silks....I love stitching with them.
You have thrilled me with your pleasure! Enjoy

Wow, you lucky girl! What a lovely exchange & to think she also designed it. You have a very talented partner!

What a beautiful biscornu! And SGVChicago says she designed it too, how cool is that!! Congratulations on getting such a one of a kind exchange.

My blog, home of the Totally useless SAL. Come on over and join the fun.

SGV, Did you really? That makes it even more amazing (and I thought it was already as good as it could get!)

I am now working on my own Biscornu to give out with this beautiful one you sent at my side. How lovely it is! It is an encouragement to me when my own piece seems very difficult and slow (though it is really not so complex as yours in any way!) I think to myself, "How kind she was to put in all the work to give such a nice thing to me, a stranger. I must do my best and work hard to make a gift for my partner, too!" I also wish that you'll will get a really nice biscornu yourself from your sending partner!

To all of the other commenters, thanks for taking the time to leave a note about this piece!

Much of the joy for me in this entire exchange genre is the reaction of the person receiveing the gift! And your reaction tops them all! No woman stitcher is a stranger....just someone you have not met yet.
