Frog Biscornu

Hi everyone, I'm Lisa, new here, but not a stranger to freebies! Here is Casey Buonaugurio's freebie design 'Frog Biscornu Freebie' available on her site .

Stitched on 28 count Irish linen in Cream, using all cotton DMC threads, and embellished with beads, bows, and a fabric 'frame'. One is a pincushion/pillow (left), the other is an ornament, but can double as a pincushion as well (right).

I also added pearl topped pins. This is a gift and I hope the lucky recipient (Kathie) loves them just as much as I enjoyed stitching them for her.
