Stitch these beautiful Winners!! 
Free Pattern
Designed by Thea Dueck

My 2009 Summer Biscornu Free Pattern was designed specially for our creative stitchers! To encourage your own creativity, just use the   Original Design (link below) and choose your own colours of silk ribbon, flosses, overdyed perle, linen etc. You can also add your choice of beads or other embellishments to the finished version if you wish. Even though the contest is now over, you can still have lots of fun stitching your own little Summer Biscornu.. and for a while, you can still add your picture to the Contest Photo Album in our VS Yahoo Group.

The gorgeous 1st prize winning entry was stitched by Linda R. Her stunning Yellow and White version is shown above.  The second or ‘runner up’ prize is for the Doris D's beautiful pink and green version.

Just click on the links below to find the three versions... including their lists of materials.
Stitch your own version if you like, or use the suggestions by our winners, finish it, and upload a clear large photo in the Victoria Sampler FREE PATTERN Photo Album in the Main Victoria Sampler Yahoo group for fun! Remember the Contest has ended already on June 30th, 2009, but you can now add your own photo to the same contest album. We’ll keep the album up for a few more months this Summer.. so stitch this beautiful Summer Tuffet and share your version with all our members today!!  - Thea
