Air and Earth Biscornu - Side 1: Air complete.

Today I finally finished the air side of the second biscornu. This one took quite a bit longer to make than the last one - mostly because I didn't do much embroidery over Christmas.

Size of embroidery before being sewn : 2 1/4" / 5,75 cm square
Size of completed biscornu will be approx.: 1 1/2" / 4 cm square
Fabric: 18 ct Aida

The Air side:
Colours used: ecru, 3753 (light blue), 932 (slightly darker blue) and 931 (darkest blue)
Total number of cross stitches: 632
Total number of backstitches: 324 +  164 around the edges (still to do)
