So, if you're thinking you have seen this design before.....you're right! You have, it's the same design that I used for the biscornu. How versatile is that!?!!
After making the biscornu, I decided to stitch it again and to make it into a Christmas card. I love that rich blue for Christmas and the red border on the card makes the whole design pop. If you want to, you could add a stamped greeting on the card or use those peel off sticker greetings. Although I like the simplicity of the plain card, I like the way your eye is drawn in to the stitching.
The charts for these designs can be found on my website here, just scroll down and they are the third item. There are four different Celtic knots using the same colours as this design, but if you fancy changing the colours scheme...go for it! (Just don't forget to take a picture and let me see it!)
Anyway, since I was on a roll, I decided to then use the same design and make a Christmas ornament. (Talk about doing a Martha!!)
But, I couldn't decide if I liked the ribbon on the corner like this
or like this...
So if you are a 'hate em' kind of stitcher, then as you can see, the design would work great with some dark blue beads. And if you are a 'love em' kinda gal, then there's plenty to get your teeth into here!
So let me know...are you a love em or a hate em?
Thanks for all the wonderful comments about the biscornu instructions. I hope I have given some of you the confidence to make at least one!
Until next time...happy stitching (and knotting!)
