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

Shades of Lilac

Good Afternoon all
I wanted to show you this before we go out to the quiz tonight.  I finished it this afternoon and I am quite proud of it.

It is made from different shades of lilac card and a little bit of pink.  I attached lace to edges before I stuck to the fronts and then went to town with embellishments of gems, hand made flowers, flourishes and pearls etc etc etc.  This doily is from a pack I bought in local Chinese bazaar shop for -----------50cents for 50, can you believe that?  No wonder cafes put your biccys on one each time you have tea or coffee.
