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

Stick Pin Fabric book

Good Morning All

I made  a stick pin book to go on the stall last week but it didn't sell.
Although, overall I did very well, others didn't do too well, but I sell my cards so cheap, just to get rid of them really.  Better getting something instead of nothing.
I have lots of lace to be used and this is a perfect way of using it.
I really enjoy making these and have been making ribbon flowers too, as you saw on Monday.
(Tutorial at top of blog)

This is the inside before I added the pins.

I did quite well though so very pleased.
And a big Thank You to my crafty friend Val, who helped out before flying off to UK.

This wont be wasted as it will be a surprise gift for someone. 

Did you see John Next Door on Hochanda this week?
He was storing his stick pins on a heart shaped box like this.  
This is one he made for me, and I still use it.
The pins are some of the first I made, aren't some of them  awful???

This was the original post HERE when he gave it to me before he moved to UK.
He is very good at sewing but I dont think he has as much time to play now.
Also, when I got up this morning the sky was an amazing colour, the pic doesn't do it justice.
It was so pink and grey, just beautiful, it changed in the few seconds it took me to get hold of my tablet.

and this is one day last week, another beauty.

Hi Wendy. Just love these pin books. The stall looked so pretty. Enjoyed doing the Craft Fayre. I think your stall did better than anyone else.
Bye for now.
