giveaway winner yeah

I'm a winner   whoopee,
Laura from Cute Crocheted Creations is doing a lot of craft work to prepare for her soon to be wedding and still has time to host a giveaway.!!!!!
Amazing giveaway thank you so excited.
Go and check out Laura's blog, brilliant photos especially from her mums garden,
I will post photos of the gifts as soon as possible.

just as a matter of course, do you prepare a post, keep adding to it, then post it when you are happy with it or just post it anyway.???

I've been doing the later but I'm finding it easier to prepare a post first, then if it needs editing or adding to, it's quick to do, before finally posting it.
does that all make sense???

this is one i prepared early
didn't want to post it until after 19th as it would have spoilt surprise for Jo's birthday
hope its the right colour Joanne
Happy Birthday Jo hope you have a good one.

this picture is a bit dark it doesn't show the true colour off very good
since taking this photo i have added a card insert also a loop and button on top so it can be closed if needed. loved making this as a break from ami's

I've also loved making this cushion cover i got the idea from the

 wanted to use this variegated yarn tho saves the hassle of sewing in all the ends from colour changes

again the photo doesn't show the colours up

I've had this hook case for quite a while now but only just remembered to take a photo. It contains most of my hooks, and has a small, lined pocket to keep some scissors in, i made a chain to link through the handles to fasten to a button to prevent them from falling out genius or what lol

I've joined a swap a month group over on Ravelry, my partner lives in America, good idea or what?
How much is it going to cost me to send a gift over there oh well, I've more or less decided on what i am going to send,something already made up, so that will save me some work.

This is the completed basket, with the button loop closing and i hope a better photo,to show up the colour.
This is the the third one I've made, love the texture of the stitch, as with everything else, it takes longer to sew up than to crochet it.

More photos of my cushion as you can see its got rather big, that's to accommodate the cushion insert that hubby got .I decided to join on a darker colour and i do think its superb, I'm considering joining  front and back with white or pale blue as a contrast, what do you think ?
It looks like a huge pinwheel or a cover for the spare tyre on the back of our car
.I've actually read someones blog and they crocheted a wheel cover for the back of their camper van , it looked amazing but I don't think I'll go that far.

Going to Bridlington for the weekend and hopefully when we get back I might have received a surprise in the post, photos to be posted as soon as i can

Thanks again to Laura for holding a great giveaway and of course to Laura's mum for picking out my name.

Have a good weekend everybody I know I will.
