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

Christmas Crochet

Good Evening All 

Feeling so mad, I ordered from Create & craft ( Grand Calibur plus lots of other stuff) on 24th July and after numerous emails was told order had been dispatched 2nd September, long story but told today that I had been refunded, when I looked into it, it was less my membership fee and less P&P.  So b*****y annoyed.  Got on the phone again, and they dont know their a***es from their e****ws.  Who wants to be a member of a club that I am now told, dont deliver to Spain, even though , on their website they deliver  worldwide!!!!!! Grrrrrrr I cant describe how I am feeling at this moment in time, I could screw someones head off!!!!!!

Anyway, as promised to John Next Door here is my card for today.

These are from recycled Christmas cards.  I had a browse around on Pinterest    ( (recycled Cards)  and the actual website is here )    and saw this idea.  You cut the image out and punch holes and then crochet around.

I don't blame you for being mad Wendy, I would be too. That is appalling service, I have heard bad things about them in the past.
Your card is gorgeous, such a great way to recycle cards. Your crochet frames look wonderful
Take care

C&C promise a lot but do not deliver on them. I am surprised they do not post out to Spain I am sure a lot of Ex pats would love to be able to order from them.

I like the idea of recycling cards and the crochet work is amazing, great idea.

Take it easy girl.

Hi Wendy
After what poor Val experienced with Gelligate, that doesn't surprise me. I ordered a couple of bits Monday, which arrived yesterday, no problems but they sent me 3 emails on different days saying order dispatched. Then they sent an email today to tell me it had been delivered. . . . .I know, I've been using the bloomin stuff!
Back on track. . . . . Lovely cards and fab crochet. Try not to stress about C&C.

Hi Wendy. I so love the crocheting now made into a card. You are such a clever thing.
Join the club with C+C. They are the worst after sales ever. I have things delivered out here all the time from other companies. Very rarely is there a problem but if there is it's sorted. C+C take months faffing and it never reaches a satisfactory conclusion. See what you've done - you've started me off again when I'd just calmed down!!
Take care Wendy, it's not good for the blood pressure.

Love Val x

Good morning Wendy, hope you have calmed down a little. What a horrible experience, C&C and Ideal World can be a right pain. I have had trouble with them in the past.

I love your wonderful cards, what a great idea. I let the boys make cards with last years cards but never thought of doing that myself. Off to have a rummage to see what is in the boys Bit Box.
Have a great weekend

Terrible service Wendy and I am not surprised that you lost it, I would have done the exact same thing. Anyway, away from the rubbish, your cards are beautiful and I just love your crocheting. Hugs, Jen x
