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 a daughter, Aurora, born March 2015. Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my makes. Please leave a comment so that I know you have visited me. xxxx

Colours of our flag for Allsorts

Good Morning All
Allsorts Challenge this week is hosted by Mervi and she wants us to use the colours of our national flags.
Although I live in Spain, which is red and yellow, I am English so mine is Red, White and Blue.
I went very CAS for this one
CE Happy Birthday die and Pierced flag die (appropriate)
I put the coloured flags in order of red, white and blue then added buttons in reverse order.

We have two sponsors for this one -

Wow, it is hot here, strange how some places are getting extremes if weather.  Parts of Europe getting excess heat and UK excess rain.
Yesterday on FB someone  posted 53 degrees in the sun and 38 in the shade here.
No wonder the A.C. taking a battering!!!!!!
I Skyped  Hollie on Monday as it was her 5th Birthday.
She was wearing the hair clip I made her HERE
Mum and Dad bought her a bike and her face was a picture as they led her through the kitchen and she saw it on the lawn.
A Magical moment and one I was so pleased to share.
