Contest Entry

May I present the Phillies Biscornu, my entry in the Craftzine Stitch N Pitch contest?

I thought how much the stitching on the edges of a biscornu reminded me of a baseball, so I did my seams in baseball red. The Phillies' "P" and blue star logos decorate the object, which is remarkably round for something made from two squares of fabric. If I don't win (and really, what are the odds?) I will make the chart available here at some later date, once I've sat down and charted the whole thing (I do have a chart of the P available for all you Phillies fans). Here's my Phillies fun fact: I work with a former Phillies team doctor.

Anna-love your Phillies Biscornu! Very creative and I'll keep my fingers crossed you win. Very creative! We're masochists which means we're Cub fans. We understand that no matter how good the season starts out the Cubs will break our hearts!

I wish I had an answer for you on how to make cross stitch cool. Been thinking about it for the last year or so. It gets a bad rap and it's unfair. Knitting is so practical, cross stitch just is, that alone IMHO makes it cool.

Very nice design! I love it! Good luck. I know what you mean...I live in Maryland (go o's??) but love the red sox...have to keep it under the hat!

I love reading your blog...I think we could make for an interesting lunch....we think a lot alike! Scary huh?

well done! If it only featured the Cardinals, though, it would be perfect :) So glad to see you entered!
