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 a daughter, Aurora, born March 2015. Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my makes. Please leave a comment so that I know you have visited me. xxxx

Christmas Stocking

Good Morning All
Here is the stocking I have made for Hollies first Christmas.  Made from felt, I drew a pattern myself just to get a guide to the size I wanted and I used a Crafters Companion  CD to make templates for the letters (the cd's are great for this as you can make letters in 3 sizes).  I think it looks pretty cute, and I hope her Mum and Dad like it too and Santa will fill it with delicious goodies in future years for her.  I used to love my Christmas Stocking filled with nuts, an apple, a tangerine and maybe an orange too.  Those were the days!!!!
