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

Colour Combo for Craft Rocket

Good Morning All
Craft Rocket Challenge this week is 'Fave Colour Combo'
Now, I know, we all have many, if I use Pink and Black, that is my fave.
If I use Brown and Blue, that is my fave.
For this one it is Peach and Brown, love it.
I made a Wall Hanger Pin Cushion.
After watching many You Tube vids, I decided to have a go and here it is.

It is about 10" wide and most of the bits are from my stash, all I had to buy was the stuffing to go inside and the pearl string.  I couldn't get any wadding so I had to buy a cushion for 1.85 euro and use the stuffing from inside.
Roses are Cherry Lynn die.
Just for You a Sue wilson die
LOVE X Cut Alphabet dies
Bronze Butterfly from local China shop (so cheap for 6)
I won the lace afew years ago.
My own Bead Pin and  hanging beads.

Pop over to the challenge blog to see the other DT inspiration.
