Biscornus

embroidery

A biscornu is an eight-sided ornamental pincushion, usually decorated with cross stitch or embroidery. I recently learned about them (thanks, Internet!) and, in my quest to master every useless handicraft possible, made a few.

So guess what my relatives are getting for Christmas this year!
