Another Giveaway with a Twist

Sometime earlier I promised you a giveaway that would be a little different...well it's time to get to it. Above you will see a finished biscornu. If you would like to be entered in to the drawing for it, post your name to this post and you shall be entered. Now for the twist.......
The above picture shows everything I used (plus some extras) to stitch the biscornu. Included in this kit are the following: 28ct. hand dyed jobelan (enough to do top and bottom), a piece of cotton already pressed to the correct size...this is for those who would like to have the bottom different....Gloriana Silks and Gloriana Silk Ribbon, DMC floss, beads, ribbon for the bow, needles (1 gold tapestry and a straw needle for the beading and finishing....I've even included enough polyester stuffing to finish it off. I've even included a heart charm that says you've made it with love. So as you can see, I've included everything you would need to stitch the biscornu without ever having to get anything from your sewing room except for scissors. Those I haven't included. So if you would like to be entered for the kit, please post to this also.
So let's see, I'm having two giveaways in one. The first is the finished piece that I stitched....and the second is the kit for you to stitch and finish yourself. When you post your name, please mention which one (or maybe both) that you are interested in.
The winners will be picked this Sunday afternoon during the Nascar race.
Good luck everyone......Barbara
P.S. I forgot to mention that I designed this pattern and will be giving this away free after the giveaway is over. Also, don't let it keep you from entering if you live overseas....it won't keep me from mailing it to you.

How fun!! Please enter me for "BOTH" drawings; I've never made one before. :)

How neat. I would love to be entered for both. I love the finished one but have never made a biscornu! Not sure why but I would give it the ol' college try if I won it.

Thanks for two great giveaways!

You're so clever Barbara. Not entering as I've been treated several times over the last couple months, but wanted to pop in and say how lovely your finish is:) Good luck to all! Enjoy the rest of your week.
