Two sides of an Egyptian biscornu pattern I found online in Russian, I think the designer is
Tatiana Khabarovsk. I was just finishing up the last bits on the camel side when I realized that the camels were Bactrian (2 hump) rather than Dromedary (1 hump) which is what they have in Egypt. So I just filled in the space a bit to convert them. I really love it, but my sister tried to sneak it into a pocket when I showed it to her, and looked all sad and Christmasy when I took it back, so I don't know how long I'll have custody.
My friend MA brought me a book of biscornu by Bobbie Watts, and this was her favorite. The bit of bead accent was fun. We spent an afternoon digging through the button box for the lovely pearl buttons. Originally my buttons lived in the classic old fruit cake tin. After a few decades and several inheritances it occupies a 10"x12"x14" plastic tub. I think the oldest were from my grandmother's button collection.
