A little while ago, Hazel's Crochet posted a review about a new crochet book called Edward's Menagerie by Kerry Lord from Toft Alpaca. Lovely Hazel also had a couple of tickets for the launch to give away, so as I live not too far away, I eagerly accepted her generous offer and last Friday, with fellow crafty friends Sarah & Rachel in tow, off we went to spend a fun afternoon surrounded by all-things-alpaca-and-crochet.
It was a beautiful warm sunny day so we started with a tour of the farm to see the funny and curious alpacas and crias (the baby ones, who were just too adorable),
followed by a yummy alfresco lunch, before we headed back inside to meet Edward's Menagerie and enjoy a little crochet workshop.
Seriously, just how adorable are these gorgeous animals ? Aren't they just so sweet? And they all have their own stories too.
And so enamoured by these funny & fabulous creatures was I, that I just had to buy an extra copy of this delightful book to giveaway.
So, in celebration of reaching the milestone of 300+ followers on GFC, and to say a big thanks to all of you lovelies who are following along on this crafty bloggy adventure with me, I'm giving away a copy (signed by lovely Kerry Lord of course) of the book.
If you'd like a chance to win it, it's simples. Just . . .
1) be a follower of my blog (GFC, Bloglovin' or by email); and
2) leave me a little comment below - and if you're a no-reply blogger, please make sure you leave contact details too.
Now, as we have a full house of guests for the next little while, I'm going to take a wee bloggy break for two weeks, so will leave the giveaway open until midnight GMT on Sunday 10th August and announce the winner asap thereafter.
So, good luck & so long for now.
'til next time,

Thanks again Hazel for your generosity, and thanks to all the lovely ladies at Toft Alpaca for hosting such a fun event..
