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

Hello John and Pin Cushion

Good Morning All

As this post goes live I shall be  on my way to the airport  to visit this young man.
As I wave goodbye to my John and will say Hello to John Next Door at lunch time I hope, if all on time.

It is so handy as John lives in the region  of the airport I have to fly to, to visit Ricky and Lorien.

He picks me up and we can spend some crafty time together.
I,m lucky enough to be going to Ally Pally too, so may see some of you there on Saturday and Sunday.

This is a Ferero Rocher Choccy box I have altered for a girl that goes to our slim club and has just bought herself a sewing machine, although she is not a sewer, she has been watching You Tube !!!

So I thought I would use this to make a pin cushion and box combined for her cotton reels and needles etc.

I had to put glitter on this flower as I got hot glue on it and couldn't pick it off!!!!

I love the black flower motifs, I can't remember where they came from.

This is the inside.
