Well it's hard to believe it is September already  how times flies, didn't get to go on a Holiday this year, hubby lost his job due to cut backs etc, it seems this year that I must have done something terrible in my past life to have so much very bad luck and big financial problems this year, finding it hard to cope but will keep on struggling on, I 'm in   good health  so shouldn't complain .

I have been doing some stitching to keep sane,  I seem to have small pieces of Aida and didn't know what to do with them so while I was browsing the Internet I came across Biscornu's and if you don't know what a biscornu is well here is some information :

A biscornu is a small, 8-sided, stuffed ornamental pincushion, usually made out of Aida cloth or linen. Embroidery or cross-stitch is used to decorate the top and bottom of the cushion. A button is typically secured in the center of the cushion to give a small depression on the top. Beads, tassels and other objects can decorate the biscornu. They are typically able to fit in the palm of your hand. The name is derived from a French adjective, meaning skewed, quirky or irregular.
I found this blog  and the biscornus are so beautiful.

So I had a go and this is the result and I'm very proud of it

This is the front side

and the back
