A Finish, A WIP and I Feel Old

Mini Biscornu
stitched on 28ct White Opalescent with Dinky Dyes Silk
I just love thes Baby Biscornu's from the Floss Box. I had stitched this one (and 2 more) some time ago and just got this one put together. I think I'm going to have to find a little tiny basket for the babies.
"sizzle" Tin Top
Got a lot done on this today. I hope to have it finished in the next day or two and then will put it and the "hop" tins together as well as the pin wheel.
I feel OLD today. It's my baby boy's birthday!! I guess he isn't a baby anymore since he turned 26 today but he will always be my sweet Baboo. This is the first year he hasn't been at home for his birthday and I sure miss him.
The next couple of posts are the rest of what I have been up to stitching wise. Also if you haven't left a comment on my PIF post and would like to have something from me (it probably will be something stitched just for you) please leave a comment there with your name before Monday.
That's about it for tonight, Until Next Time....Happy Stitching

That baby biscornu is just the cutest little thing. I imagine that finishing that was somewhat difficult as it is so small. I'm loving that sizzle too.
It is so difficult to watch our children get older. I swear I cry at every stinkin' birthday. Sending big hugs to you Ms. Rene.

they are very cute Rene. I really like seeing the tin top.
and happy birthday to your son! now I wonder about how my mother feels... I'm sure she feels something special on my special occasions, she is my mother and I'm her only daughter. but sometimes I wish she would express more of that feeling explicitly than acting cool and calm as usual *laughs*

Baby biscornus are very sweet, but fiddly to make up. Your choice of patterns always appeals to me also.

They look great, Rene.

Love the tin lid--how do you put it together???

Nice work as always! Good luck with all the finishing in your future!

Lovely work. As usual. :) And a very happy B'day to you "baby". By the way, no matter how old he gets he will always be your baby. :)

Can't wait to see the tin completed.
