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 3 daughters Aurora, born March 2015 and Arabella, born August 2017 and Arianna born 2019. 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

Good Morning All
This is a bracelet I made at my craft meet, one of the ladies does beading and she taught us how to do the basic swirl stitch.

This is one I did in another colour, and I gave this as a prize in our raffle at our Fat club, and from that, I was asked to make enough  for us to give, as a gift to all the members  for Christmas.

So now I am busy beavering away making these in different colours that I hope all the  members will like.  I am going to try to make some earrings too which I will show when I have made them.

PS.  Although I learnt at my class, here is a very good tutorial on YouTube
She has some wonderful tuts here and very easy to follow.

Morning Wendy,

These are beautiful and look very time consuming. The pattern looks so pretty with the different beads. You are going to be busy making those but I am sure the ladies will love them.

Love & Hugs
