Nearly There

Last night I worked a little on the biscornu design (my first) I'm doing - I'm still not convinced about the thread colour, but I am forging on regardless just to see how it turns out. It was only a little while, because H and I got out the golf clubs and made our way up to the local driving range - now that our interest in golf has been renewed, we were pleasantly surprised to find that the local golf club does in fact have a driving range, and is tucked away in the fields just north of the village. It only takes about 5 minutes to drive there, mainly because you have to drive around the village to get to it - it's less than a mile as the crow flies. We had a very pleasant evening as the sun was shining and there are countless birds and other wildlife living in all the fields around the course - very peaceful. Until, of course, you hear me cursing my 7-iron, or H applauding himself for hitting a straight drive. The joys of golf!

So anyway, I've not much more left on this, the first side of the biscornu. I am toying with the idea of using a solid colour for the reverse side (same pattern) rather than carrying on with the very lurid (see, I am convincing myself more and more that I don't like it so much) thread I am currently using. We shall see! Tonight is the Champions League final, and H is out for dinner with some work contacts, leaving me in peace to carry on stitching this, so it's quite possible I'll make a decision tonight on the thread for the reverse.

Happy stitching!

I like the thread, I think this is going to make up into a beautiful biscornu ;)
