Biscornu blog giveaway

Free pattern available here
This giveaway is now closed
I just love biscornu’s and I am sure there are a number of fans out there who love them too, so I have decided give away this ladybird biscornu, it is stitched using DMC threads on linen.
All you need to do is leave a message on this post and tell me what is your favourite finished stitched item on my blog. You are welcome to follow my blog if you think it’s worthy, however that is not a pre-condition to win! I may not get access to the computer over the next few days so if your comment does not appear straight away please bear with me, I will access when I can.
I will draw the winner on Wednesday evening at 8.00pm GMT time, so don’t be late!
Edited: I originally asked for visitors to say why they visit my blog but I suppose it’s because you like cross stitch, so I decided to change the question!
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.

    "leave a message on this post and tell me why you visit my blog"

    I visit your blog because it reminds me of times sitting at the kitchen table cross-stitching with my mum years ago–she passed away a year and a half ago, so it's lovely to be able to enjoy something through memories by seeing the work of others.

    Thank you for that.

    Your biscornu is just darling. Actually all your finishes are fabulous.
    I just love seeing all your creative finishes. One reason I enjoy checking your blog.

    Hi Lynn, thanks for visiting my blog and leaving such a lovely comment. I already have you in my blog list so that I don't miss anything. I do like the A Mon Ami Pierre mattress pincushion that you made and the biscornu is a lovely giveaway too.

    I have fallen with love with biscornus and I saw this pattern not too long ago. I would have to say that it is my favourite item on your blog. I would love to win it.

    Hi! I am new to your blog. I like all the biscornus you made (I love them, too :), but I was blown away by your Spring Queen by Mirabilia. Gorgeous!!! πŸ™‚

    You've stitched a lovely biscornu, how kind to give it away! I love a lot the needlebook in the previous post, but also your first biscornu (the Christmas one).

    I love the pinkeep & needlebook set you stitched for your sister's birthday. I used that free chart for a needlebook I made for my friend. πŸ™‚
    That ladybug biscornu is really pretty! I hope I win. πŸ™‚

    I've just found your blog through the Freebie Gallery, and wow you do beautiful work. It is very difficult to pick just one favourite but I've plumped for the Prarie Schooler Pin Keep, it is so neat (mine never turn out that nice )
    Thanks for the giveaway πŸ™‚

    I always like to visit your blog as you are so cheerful it makes my day. I love all your finished you do a beautiful job with them. I think my favorite is the Petal Farie. She is very pretty. Thanks for sharing

    Cute biscornu and beautifully finished:)
    There is no way I can pick just one favorite stitched piece of yours. So I say each and every one….ALL OF THEM!! I WANT THEM ALL!!!….lol….
    Thank you for this giveaway:) It's a yummy one!

  14. June 12, 2009 / 3:51 pm

    I like the needlebook that you made with the Dinky Dyes silk (autumnal colors) the best. I hope to win this biscornu, but will stitch it myself if I don't.

    For my favorite design on your blog–I have visited your blog a few times this year, and when I saw the valentine exchange with the pillow that has a heart bouquet on it, I tracked down the pattern and did it also! Love that design, and enabled quite a few more to do it once I finished it! Ladybugs are one of my favorites–I even have stickers of them on my kitchen walls (only four, strategically placed)!Thank you for the giveaway!

    It is so hard to make a choice. I like so many. I especially like the Little Blue Needlebook but I think my favorite is the heart pillow from January or February. I like the soft pink hearts and the burgundy organza ribbon. I stitch such LARGE projects that the simplicity really appeals to me…..so simple, yet so beautiful.

    Hello! This is my first time to your blog and I'm so impressed with the beautiful pieces you've made and the wonderful finishes! I love the girl with the watering can – so sweet! Thank you for including me in your giveway! I'm sure to be back to visit again! Meredith

    Wow, all of your pieces are just lovely, how can I choose just one? I just love those clay rose pins.

  19. June 14, 2009 / 6:24 pm

    I just found your blog through the Freebie Gallery. I LOVE your blog! It is visually so pretty and your work is gorgeous. We clearly have a lot in common- stitching, quilting, cardmaking and scrapbooking….are you my secret twin?

    I hope it is ok if I link your blog on mine!

    Oh, my favorite? REALLY hard to pick but I LOVE the butterfly biscornu.

  20. June 14, 2009 / 6:35 pm

    all your finishes are awesome….

  21. June 15, 2009 / 8:10 pm

    Such a lovely biscornu.

    I like visiting your blog as it's a great inspiration with all your lovely different finishes.
    (sorry though i am quite late sometimes)

    My favourite piece is the Mirabilia Petal Fairy. It is actually the piece that found me your blog! I had been searching for fairy patterns on Google and came across that post. I love the colours and it's absolutely lovely. Although I have looked at many of your needle books and needle pillows and they're all adorable. I just love them. πŸ™‚

  23. June 16, 2009 / 10:38 am

    You've done so many beautiful pieces that it's really hard to choose a favorite. I do love the set that you sent to Mylene a while back, though. Please keep the eye candy coming. πŸ™‚

    Oh now, those are just the cutest darn ladybugs I've yet seen! Well done on your biscornu!

  25. June 17, 2009 / 7:07 am

    I think my favorite is the sweet blue set you made for your exchange with Mylene. Your finishes are great!
