About Me

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

Julias Patchwork

Good Morning All
Abit late this morning as I forgot to do this post last night and just realised.

I watched Julias first show  on Hochanda the other night and loved this technique but cant remember what she called it, I used bits of scrap paper.

All the flowers and leaves are bits lying around, and needed to be used up.

Have a nice day.

  1. I love the patchwork I've done a card similar to this It's a great way of using up scraps but looks so expensive/classy when finished

  2. Hi Wendy this is a gorgeous card I love how you have created the background. I have used this technique before it is very effective. Hugs Jackie
