About Me

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

 Good Morning All

Back to Groovi which I have got into again, hopefully we can start our classes again soon when it is safe to do so.

I did an online class with Tina Cox from Clarity.

It was how to stitch on your parchment work.

I have already shown this on the Groovi group page on Facebook so some of you may have already seen this first one.

I didn't have the same plate she was using so had compromise.

The stitching is on the flower petals, it looks very pretty but boy oh boy does it take some time as all parchment work does.

One I am working on at present is taking hours, I must have already spent about 3 hours on it and only half way through.

Back to this one, I laid it onto Clarity designer paper  just to take a photo, so not completely finished yet.

And here it is now finished.

These next two are from 2 plates I bought for the March class, but I am not able to make it now.
But the plates are really pretty and versatile.
Both backed onto Clarity paper with brads.
I have a good collection of Groovi cards for  friends here in Spain, as these are both 8x8".

Here is a You Tube video with some of my Parchment work, I hope you enjoy it
