Crochet and Chocolate! Lucky me!

Hello. How are you?
 
I hope you are well and happy.

I'm a very happy bunny as a couple of days ago the postman delivered a parcel.

I had a feeling this was a special parcel and as soon as I saw the word 'Alicante' on the post mark, I knew what it was!

It had to be the wonderful giveaway prize from lovely Amanda at Crafty in the Med which I had been so lucky to win!

And there were a few surprises too!

  17. That's a beautiful blanket in the background of the first picture - I absolutely love the design. What is it called and where can I find the pattern. PS My first ever comment written to a blogmeister, so please forgive any clunking errors in etiquette, etc, that I may accidentally drop!
