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 3 daughters Aurora, born March 2015 and Arabella, born August 2017 and Arianna born 2019. 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

More than Just a Bow for Allsorts

Good Morning All

Allsorts Challenge time again and it is my turn to host this one.
I want to see ribbon but more than a bow, use your ribbon to make or decorate in a different way.

I found this wonderful You tube tutorial HERE
It is abit fiddly but well worth the effort.

The gems are stitched in between each petal.
The lady on the video used pearls which looks gorgeous but I didn't have the correct sizes.

I photographed this on my hand then you could see how big it is.

Fantastic Ribbons
Have a good weekend.

Hi Wendy,
what a very super creation.
The colour and the design are very beautiful.
Love the gorgeous satin ribbon used too.
I remember my Mum making a similar one to that with florist ribbon once, and she stapled it together.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
