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

Small Fabric Book

Good Morning All
I wanted to show you this small fabric book I made for a swap group that I am a member of on Facebook.
I was abit nervous of joining in with the swaps but the lady was really pleased with what I sent her.
A theme is set and then names are drawn for our partners and 
we are given a date to post the parcel by.
Anyway, the swap was for snail mail, flip book or envelope book.
So I made an envelope book and filled each envelope with bits and bobs.
But I also included a fabric book with some stick pins in and other embellishments.

This is the front, it measured about 6 x 4"







This is the back.















Inside before pins added.
Crocheted doily that I made too.



I also added some of the embellishments I made and showed HERE

My swap partner loved it all.

I will show you what she sent me when I receive it.

On countdown now for UK visit, 2 weeks.
