Little Treasure

WOW..... just look at this beautiful little treasure I have had sent to me as a gift :-))) This gorgeous little beauty has been sent to me by an Italian blogging friend just because she wanted to send me a little stitching present!! I really don't know what I have done to deserve such kindness but I am absolutely delighted with it and this is my first ever Biscornu :-)))

I am told it is a design by Giulia Punti Antichi so this makes it 100% an authentic Italian gift!! Wait...have you seen the back?? If you look closely you can see the pattern is actually made up of H's :-D and look at all the beads that so prettily finish the edge! This surely is an elegant little treasure, tiny, dainty (just as I love) and perfectly made.

I bet you all want to know who is my mystery gift sender with a heart of gold and the hands of a stitching fairy?? ......Well, I won't make you wait anymore...the super kind lady who has made my day is 'Paola' :-))) If you go here you can see more of her beautiful stitching and finishing she is a very talented lady :-))) Thank-you so much again Paola you have made me so very happy and I really do 'love it' and will treasure it always :-D

My comments to your blog are becoming pretty boring. Nothing but 'sigh...' and 'ooh-ah' and 'wow!' But I'm very glad that you were the receiver, rather than the giver. You deserve it, girl!

Yes Helen, this is the Isotta's Biscornu, designed by me for the International Show of Lace and Embroidery, Italia Invita, May 4th-6th 2007. If you go to my home page and you click on Italia Invita on the upper right, you will see all the designs which were presented at the show, Isotta's Biscornu included. Paola attended the show and she was very kind to stitch the biscornu for you. I'm very honoured to see that you like it and I guess I must send to Paola another chart so she can stitch the Isotta's Strawberry Pincushion and Fob. I know she deserve it. Have a nice evening and thanks for loving my design and the work of Paola,
