Valentine's Biscornu finish and a giveaway

Hello everyone,  I hope everyone is doing well.  I am not sure what is going on with blogger but I hope this entry gets posted.  It was so chaotic in my house over the holidays I thought I was going to explode.  We purchased several pieces of furniture so I had to go through all of our clothes and my stash.  I had to find a new home for my treasures and it is now in 3 seperate rooms.  I am not happy about that but at least I didn't get rid of everything.  I foolishly promised myself I wouldn't purchase anything for at least 3 months.  It lasted 2 weeks.  Oh well, what can I say, I can't resist a sale or a good deal.  I bought some PTP Lugana in Phoenix and some needles during JJ Collectibles New Years sale.  Then I went to the thrift store yesterday and bought 2 crochet books, 3 crochet doily books, 2 crochet mini books, a book on how to knit,  2 old cross stitch books, 1 cross stitch magazine, 3 booklets for about $4.50.  Who could resist that?  Not me.
Anyway, I purchased this pattern by Barbara Ana as part of my stitchy Christmas present to myself.  I wanted to finish this early so I could give it away to one of my followers.  I just want to let you know there is a smoker in my house and I have dogs just in case you have allergies. I would love to pass this pattern on to a new home; it was such a fun stitch.  I will close the giveaway on Sunday night 2pm Eastern Standard Time so it can get in the mail on Tuesday.    

Well now that I am done with this I can start to work on my SAL again.  I want to finish it so I can work on some other projects. 

Thanks so much for looking and have a great weekend.
