Look, Ma! I Made a Biscornu!

For the Jan Houtman Foundation, a little biscornu to help Theo raise money for new thatch on the building that houses all of Jan Houtman's Samplers. It's not perfect - I have a little pucker on the last corner, where I must've stretched my fabric somewhere along the way - but I am pretty sure my next one will be easier. I also know now to trim the fabric closer to the stitching - that should make turning those corners easier. Now, to get it sent to The Netherlands tomorrow...
Done on 28ct white Monaco, with a mystery spool of Vikki Clayton's premium silk, which has since been identified as Dragon Hoard - and a couple of Czech pressed glass flower beads :)
