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

Sew Nice

Good Morning All
I made this yesterday because I have numerous of these little sewing kits that you get in hotels  and I did not want to throw them away, so this is what I did with one of them.
The papers are from Papermania Docrafts goody bag last year
Buttons from my Mums old button tin
Sacking from the Rioja wine bottle
White material is offcut from when I shortened my curtains for my craft room

Also when I was out shopping in the local China store I found these --------

The charms are only 90 cents (70p) and there are loads to choose from along with jewelery findings, and the pearl pins are 80 cents and about 2" long.

The yellow sponge dibbers I thought would be good for either chalking or inking and I made some more of my cork blenders myself to have seperate ones for each colour I use.

Welcome to my new followers too, dont forget to enter the candy draw, I have added some pics of more bits I  have added and there will be more to come.
