No doubt you are asking what a biscornu is - they are what I call "little wonky pincushions", however, the word "biscornu" is a French adjective meaning "that which has an irregular form, with projections" or "complicated and bizarre." Unfortunately you can't see the whole of it to appreciate its unusual shape because of my uselessness with a camera, however this gives you an idea what they look like. I have stitched 4 of them so far and have 3 on the go at the moment.
I have designed all of the ones I am stitching and the 2 in the photos above. They don't need to just be used as pincushions, you can add a cord and hang it as a decoration. One of the ones I am stitching at the moment is for a friend's Christmas tree.
