About Me

My Photo
Alicante, Spain
Hi. I live in Spain with my great 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 my new grand daughter born july 2012. This is my younger son and his partner. I now have another Grandson born Nov 2013 to my elder Son. I love the bones of these kids. Thanks. xxxx

Another Guess What


Good Morning All

Guess What ----------




So much is recycled stuff ----

The material is the off cuts from curtains in my craft room.

Bead and chain from a broken necklace in a charity shop.

The cord round the base from a draw string waisted dress that I threw out last summer.




It's a Ferro Roche chocolate box that John gave me for Christmas, these are my very fave chocs so I always get a box for Christmas and Birthdays.

Covered with book binder glue to stick the material on.


The material wasn't wide enough to go across the lid so I had to join in the middle.


The base before I stuck the inside in.




Ribbon covering the join across the middle where the material met.


I think it is a really pretty box to adorn anyone's dressing table, but I think I will keep it for myself and store cotton wool in it.

  8. You made a great job of covering that box. Trouble is that I don't like those chocs - I'm not keen on Chocolate and nuts together, though I like them both on their own! (I know I'm weird).
