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

Felt Flower

Good Monday Morning All

As you know, I love making flowers and here is another one made from felt after watching Sue Wilson make these on a You Tube video.


I,m sorry but I have looked through the videos and cannot find the link for it it, Basically, you fold a piece of felt in half lengthwise and snip into it from the folded edge, then start winding it to form this flower.
I hope you like it.

P.S.
I just thought I would show you this lovely cactus that is part of the community plants outside my our door.   The flowers open up in the sunshine and go to sleep at night, isn't it gorgeous?

  12. Wonderful card Wendy, beautiful felt flower, did Sue fetch a die out to create a flower like this?.. not that it`s needed when you can make one like this without a die.
    Beautiful flowers on the Cacti.
