About Me

My photo
Alicante, Spain
Hi. I live in Spain with my partner. I am retired and LOVE it. I love life here but I do miss my family back in the UK, two sons and three sisters and my Mum. Crafting is my life, I do something every single day. In the past it has helped me get through some bad times in my life. One such bad time was when my first grandson died aged just 14 months. He had been born 8 weeks prem but was very healthy and was growing into a beautiful, bonny boy. It was such a shock when the call came. A day never passes when I dont think of him. I am now Nanna again to grand daughter, Hollie, born July 2012, and Tess born March 2016. This is my younger son and his partner. I now have another Grandson, Noah, born Nov 2013 to my elder Son and they have 2 daughters Aurora, born March 2015 and Arabella, born August 2017. Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my makes. Please leave a comment so that I know you have visited me. I love reading them all. xxxx

Views and Parchment

Hi all

John and I have just come back from a lovely walk through the citrus groves and down by the river (Rio del Segura).  I took afew pics to show you all.

The first one is obviously by the river - working water wheel.  The river banks are very wide to allow for floods ( thats a laugh).
And the second one is me.
And the third one is the orange trees which have now been harvested. 
It is lovely and warm here today, so warm I have been on the roof sitting in the garden chair reading.

Now onto other things like card making.
I made this one at my parchment class on Monday.  It is so delicate mounted onto lilac hexagonal card.  The flowers are coloured with crayons on the back - subtle shades of lilac and orange.

Hope you are all having a lovely weekend.  Next weekend my younger son and his partner are arriving for a week - I cant wait, so I will try to get my blog hopping done on Saturday before they arrive.
See you soon
Wendy L
