Always Read the Directions FIRST

Finishing School has directions for making a biscornu. I've been working on one for the past few days and I just found out that I need to backstitch the border. I had cross stitched mine and was quite happy to be finished with both the biscornu's top & bottom. Guess I'll be ripping out stitches later on. Why didn't I check the directions before doing the border? The border wasn't part of the printed out design but I could see one in the pictures. That should have made me think twice about adding an x-stitched one. Oh well.

The biscornu looks very interesting! How do you do such tiny cross stitch? My Mom tried to teach me how to crochet when I was about sixteen, I did not have the patience to sit still that long. Same reason I do not like to fish.
