Lavender Sachets and Cross Stitched Necklace

Overwhelming lovely sent of lavender this time of year sets spring into motion. I stitched these on 32 count grey linen using DMC 3633, 809 & 744 for the forget-me-nots and a lavender color that a friend gave me, I think was from Atalie.

Forget-Me-Nots Model: Luli Blog
Lavande Model: Histoires de Lin
Flower Necklace Model: Luli Blog

The necklace I stitched on 32 count Lugana Evenweave linen white, 1/1 DMC 815. 
I added a Singer sewing charm and an antique pearl button. 
The inner circle of the charm measured 4 cm x 3 cm.

Biscornus Pincushions

This model is from the book "La Passions des Biscornus". The two were one biscornu but I made 2 separate cushions.  I found the Biscornu model HERE FREE.

This was made with 40 count cream linen 1/2 DMC 498, 817 & 317. I used some antique buttons and made a flower from ric rac ribbon.

This biscornu was stitched on 32 count flax 2/2 DMC 317 & 318 and antique pearl buttons.

This pincushion I made with scrap fabrics using a tin can of mined clams. The tin was deeper then a tuna can. I used a piece of felt around the can with fabric over it using a glue stick and added lace and antique pearl button.

Multiplication Table

I made this multiplication table for a teacher friend of mine for her classroom.
I used 28 Count Murano White, DMC 930, 931 & 932.
The grid specified the new colors of DMC but my local store does not carry them yet so I had to change the color.
The model came from the book Souvenirs d'enfance (Veronique Enginger) HERE
The back has blue gingham which I made the loops and the bow.

Atalie Biscornu

This biscornu is a pattern by Atalie "October 2007". I found it HERE on the net. There are also many other biscornu patterns there.
I changed the colors to DMC 930, 931 & 932 on 32 count Sand linen.  This is the first time I ever did embroidery work. I hope it came out right. I also added small beads on the bottom, a Swarovski Crystal on the bottom instead of a button and an antique button for the the top.
I am pretty happy with the results.

I also finished a scissor case and fob to match. Scissor Case pattern is from Mamilou.
