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

Colourful Cot Blanket

Good Morning All

Are you all nearly ready for Christmas.  Our Mums arrive on Friday for about 12 days and they are coming to Benidorm with us.  I thought it would be good for my Mum to come here to take some of the pressure off my sisters in the UK, so they can relax and do their own thing this year.
 *********


I started doing the centre of this blanket when I was in the UK and I had some squares knitted and crocheted here so I put it all together last week.  The centre is the lovely basket weave stitch which I love doing.  I made this one HERE first and have now given it to Megan for the new baby due in March.
I made one like this for Noah HERE  and one for Mum for her 90th Birthday HERE which my sisters and my neice cntributed the squares to.

I shall give this to Mum to pack in her suitcase when she returns home to save me a bit of space when I go over in April.

    Wonderful crochet/knitting as usual. New baby will be snug as a bug wrapped in this.
