The first was from Mel over at Mellie Moo Crochet. I love it over at Mellie Moos. I found Mel's Blog as she is busy working on 'The International Diploma of Crochet'. I find this diploma course fascinating and Mel shares her work in progress, her samples and her feedback as she makes progress along her journey to getting her 'Crochet Diploma'. I would love a 'Diploma in Crochet' but as you know I do tend to hopelessly over commit myself to things. Mel gets up to all sorts of interesting stuff as well as her crochet she is a 'Morris Dancer' and I always enjoy her photography. We also live in the same county! I would recommend you follow Mel's Blog it is a treat. She has an adorable Crochet Blue Rabbit as her Blog Header and Mel leaves little crochet surprises in random places for the 'world' to find and her crochet creations to go and have adventures. In my prize package there were two chocolate 'Halloween' lollies.
Both of my boys were very grateful! These skellybobs did not last long. Also in the package was a beautiful crochet doily. You really can never have too many of these and this one is a beauty:
Now I have a terrible terrible confession. The day the parcel arrived I was in a rush as I got home from work and needed to get out for Bonfire Night with Euan. I messaged Mel on Facebook to thank her and tell her how much I loved the 'prize' a vintage trio of a cup, saucer and side plate. I love vintage tea cups so much. I told Mel how I was looking forward to a Cuppa with my lovely 'new' cup and saucer. They were all safely bubble wrapped in the box. I left the box on my bed and rushed out. On my return I found a disaster which made me sad!
You have not seen the bestest part of the package yet! I always try to save the bestest until last. Just have a look who has come to live at my house:
