My First February ornament

First finish... first buttercups..... First Love.

Yes, love to Indigo Rose. "Four Little Hearts",
a freebie made into a biscornu. I used scraps of
DMC floss and Evenweve 28 ct. and added some
Mill Hill beads. Both sides of the biscornu are identical --
the design is small and I enjoy stitching specialty stitches.
Happy stitching to everybody,

Thank you everybody for your interest and nice comments. Two strands of 316 DMC are used for the Rhodes Hearts.
I had been looking for the design for a long time before I found it somewhere in the Internet. Unfortunately there is no address on the copy I made. Just now I found another IR design good for a biscornu http://www.caron-net.com/dec00files/dec00desf1.html.
Biscornus are not so hard to do, if you need any help, inspiration - leave a message in my blog.
