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

Make a Gift

Good Morning All

It has gone abit colder here in Spain, or it may just be me, coming back from holidays.  I,ve had to put the summer quilt on the bed and get the winter clothes out of boxes.  I swap over the summer clothes with the winter ones every spring and autumn.  I leave afew out because we do have some hot days in winter occasionally.  Not moaning though, I do love this time of year.  Hollie (Dad) skyped me last night to show her new winter coat (waiting pics from Mum), a gorgeous Little Red Riding Hood coat, soooo cute.
Allsorts Challenge time again and the theme this week is 'Make A Gift' and it has been set by Sarah. I made a gift voucher or money  card.

This is the inside where I have made a pouch for a voucher or money to go.
