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

Sketchy Time

Good Morning All
This time at Moving Along With The Times, Hazel has given us a sketch to work with

Here is my interpretation of it  ------

I made a flower from some wool bought in the local shop when I was with John Next Door and used a piece off a bracelet for the centre,  the rest is all from stash. embossed recycled card, sentiment stamped on scrap, buttons from my Mums old button tin.  So this is nearly all recycled.  How good am I!!!!!!

Hope you like it and will pop over to the challenge blog and have a go.
