Friday Post - giveaway draw

Hello everyone hope you are having a lovely Friday.  I've had a busy week of crochet, starting with my club night and then it was the second week of my beginners crochet course, the second workshop is always my favourite as I love teaching treble crochets and then we move on to make a simple granny square. The look of achievement on everyone's face is so rewarding I love granny squares.
I've been busy finishing projects and have also started a few new Christmas crochet makes. My favourite has been bunting and I have fallen in love with making little crochet houses, they have been designed by the amazingly talented Aki, she has written a beautiful pattern for the houses which you can find here you will love it. I have booked a table next weekend at a Christmas Craft Fair, it sounded a good idea a few months ago but now I'm getting worried about my lack of stock, hence all the busy project finishing. I find it such a hard thing to gauge how many things I will need, but my new philosophy is to only make items that I love and would gladly keep for myself or items that I would happily give away for Christmas presents. I'm planning to have much more of a handmade Christmas this year so if I have things that I don't manage to sell they will still come in useful. I am going to find it hard to part with my blankets and little houses, although I'm not sure my young grandsons will appreciate a crochet creation when Minecraft is firmly on the top of the Christmas present lists. 
It has felt great to be back blogging again and the idea of a Friday post feels good and much less pressure. I have been looking forward to announcing the winner of my giveaway and it has been really lovely receiving comments on my blog, face book page and Instagram from people wanting to enter. As promised everyone had an entry for each of the different social media entries and now drum roll please - the lucky winner of the Stylecraft Special Edition yarn pack is Sofia Quaresma who entered via Face book, thank you so much for entering Sofia I will be in touch soon to arrange delivery of your yarn. 
I'm sorry that my post has been lacking in photographs, I am away from home at the moment and have had trouble loading up any images - sorry you missed my prize draw photo Jake adjudicated and helped me choose the winner.

I promise a more colourful post next week.
