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

Mixture

Good Morning All
As promised, this is a pram / cot blanket I am working on for the new babs.  I first saw this style of crochet blanket on Jans Blog here posted on 20th Aug 2014, so I looked on You tube and found a tutorial HERE.




The wool used is the same as I used for Hollies Cardigan HERE, it is a very pale lemon.








***********************
Back to card making - I was asked to make this card awhile ago for a ladies Grandson.


I used Coredinnations card and distressed it.
Paper from a Craft Mag.

The tiny letter beads I have had for years, hope you like it.

  4. Hi Wendy, thanks for the link to my blog. Your blanket is coming on nicely, and it's an easy pattern to follow isn't it?. I am discovering that you-tube is a great place to find out anything. Have fun with the grandkids. The Q.P.R card would have been great for my brother - he's a big fan too. Janice xx
