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

Crochet Shawl

Good Sunday Morning All
I am so pleased to announce that my eldest son, Lee and his partner have found out that they are having a girl, a little sister for Noah.

I have had this shawl on the go for more than a year and finished it afew weeks ago, just in case.

I also have done another blanket in lemon, using the same batch of wool I bought at the local craft shop before it closed, I will show this in a future post.  I showed the start of it HERE as I couldn't wait to show off this lovely new (to me anyway) stitch I had seen.  HERE is Hollies cardigan using the same wool and here she is wearing it.

Hope you are all having a lovely weekend, Mum is taking us out for a Sunday roast today, Mmmm.
