I found this pattern in the May 2007 issue of The Gift of Stitching,
a digital (online) cross stitch magazine. It was designed by Linda Björk Eiríksdóttir.
This biscornu will go to my aunt in Germany who traveled to Iceland last summer. She, like myself, does a lot of crafts and I hope she'll be able to put this pin cushion to good use.
I stitched this on 28 count evenweave (left-over fabric I found in my stash) using 2 ply Sampler Thread "Midnight".
It was cross-stitched over 1x1 thread - my eyes still hurt :-)
