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

Flower Power for Allsorts

Good Morning All
Allsorts Challenge this week is a nice easy one - Flower Power.

I used some flowers I had in my stash to decorate two Pin cushions.

I bought afew  boxes with pins inside from local China shop, I thought they were too nice to throw out so decorated them up after stuffing the top to make into a pin cushion.

I used paper flowers and organza ones to decorate.
Hand crochet doily on the top of each.
They go to the local bar to sell for charity.

This is how it started off with a little sponge stuck on top.

We have a prize from our sponsor - Tattered Lace.
