Threads: DMC threads , crescent colours threads and mill hill beads
Finishing: mattress pincushion
Made my first strawberry shaped pincushion, I used the chart from the Prairie Schooler, book no.101. I used 14 aida and my own thread color choices.
For the pink one I used venus no. m-009 and for the blue one its DMC thread and painter's thread 102 Kandinsky.

I really enjoyed making this biscornu, the thread was so silky and soft, and the design really sweet. I used 28 count white Jobelan fabric, Pearl beads, Rainbow Gallery metallic thread and stranded Dragon Floss in "Steaming Needles". The buttons were crystal "buttons" I found in my nearest embroidery shop.
