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

Matinee Jacket

Good Morning All
Mostly healed now from my fall on the stairs last week, just a little bruising on my face and legs but getting better.
Having a break from my Die Challenge today, to show you this sweet matinee jacket I have just finished knitting in this gorgeous lace pattern for the new baby.  Megan only has 3 weeks to go now so I will give this to Johns Mum to post when she returns to UK after visiting us next week.

I,m so glad that both DIL's like hand knitted / crochet clothes for their kids as I enjoy doing them and Loriens Granny knits loads of jumpers and cardigans for Hollie.
I knitted this in the first size so I want to get it to Megan for when the baby is born and dont want to wait until I visit at the beginning of May.
She will be a little sister for this gorgeous fella, Noah.

Beautiful Wendy, love it.
So glad they like "hand knits".
For me "new babies" look wonderful in "hand knit" matinee jackets.
Have a good day

Hi Wendy
what a super little jacket. New baby will be snug in that. Blimey, Noah is growing fast. Mum is going to have her hands full.
Glad you're feeling better.
