New finishes

I have been on a finishing spree these past days. I promised myself I am not trying out my new sewing machine until I finish some things. First, because I need space on the table (LOL) and second, because I am a coward... LOL again.

I finished the Hungarian patterns I showed you not long ago, here they are:

I especially like these two little cushions. I saw pictures of similar things on the net, but no tutorial, so I figured out how to do it by trial and error :)

And another experimental thing. Again, a pattern I posted earlier, and said I wasn't sure whether it would work for a biscornu, because I didn't draw it as a rectangular shape but had the corners cut off.

(I have to admit, I was so much in a hurry to see how it would look finished that I forgot to stitch the yellow in the middle of the flowers on the other side :D )

So, I think it did work, and I have to say I really like the wavy effect the edges have. Compare it with the sharp corners of a regular biscornu.

I love the new shape biscornu Agi, it's different but still really pretty like a biscornu should be. :)

I love the little pillows you made, they look gorgeous!

Beautiful finishes Agi!

I really like the blue tulip cushion; did you do the crocheted trims on the pillows yourself? If so, they are lovely :)

Also, I think your biscornu is one of the prettiest I've ever seen. I have no idea how you made them, but the soft waves look so much more subtle and striking than the sharp square corners that are traditional. The colours are lovely as well :)

Wonderful work!
