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

Pin Cushion

Good Morning All

A little late today as I dont usually post 2 days on  the run but I have shared this pin cushion on my Facebook page so I thought I would add on here too.

I had a project in mind but needed alot of straight pins. I bought quite afew of these boxes  of them in the local China shop.
The project did not work out by the  way LOL.

Too good to throw out so decided to decorate them in a Shabby chic style.
It is about 3" in diameter.

This is how it turned out, not too fussy. Just lace trim on the sides and a small doily on top after stuffing. A lace bow with a pearl gem.

I have done some more but they are for a DT blog so you will have to wait to see those.
So that is a little inspiration for you and dont throw things out, you may be able to decorate.
I have already sold this and another one like it, so more shopping for the village charity this week.
