I am also working on a blackwork design from Nancy Pederson, Elizabethan Biscornu from the Jan. 08 issue of The Gift of Stitching online magazine. It is my first blackwork piece and it will be my first time putting together a biscornu. I'm also making a scissor fob using the center design. It is stitched on a scrap of cream 32 ct. linen with black DMC floss. I am amazed at how beautiful and intricate the design looks on the linen!
