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

My Pin Cushion Swap

Good Morning All

Last Wednesday I shared the gorgeous Pin Cushion I received in my Swap, well here is the one I made for my swap partner.

I altered a Ferrero Roche chocolate box and filled it with homemade fabric flowers.

I did not stick the pins in the top I put them inside
(for posting)

I also included some other goodies too.

My John is scooting off to Liverpool tomorrow to watch a footy match and catch up with family so lots of crafting for me!!!!

On Wednesday,  my crafty friend Val and I are on a coach trip.
  We are going to a place called Elda, not been there before.
Will show some pics n a future post.
