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 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

Blankets for Dogs

Good Morning All
I put a poster on the wall in the local English bar (where we have our slim and craft meets)
asking if anyone had any scraps of wool they no longer required.
A lady brought in a  massive bags of odd balls.
There was allsorts, some full balls, some tiny scraps, double knitting, 4 ply and chunky too.
I dont think the dogs will mind a mix of colours or ply of wool do you???

As you know I like to keep my hands busy while watching TV. (no rude comments please !!!)  so I crochet alot and knit abit.
The charity I give alot of my cards to are always on the look out for blankets and covers for the dogs.

I gave these to Linda just before I went to UK,   She was really pleased with them.

Hi Wendy
Just shows what a generous heart and spirit you have.
I'm sure there will be lots of wagging tails when they snuggle on these.
