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 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

Parchment Heart

Good Morning All
Got to Mums at teatime yesterday and just as well I did, she would never had managed on her own, she is obviously still on her crutches and finds it easier walking with them than her frame so she cant carry a cup of tea or anything.   She thought she would be OK on her own with my sisters popping in and out but it is much better someone being here full time.  Otherwise she is in good spirits and I,m making sure she does her exercises.  We are just planning our meals and then I will go off and do some shopping but it is pouring down at the moment.  Asda just happens to be near The Range, so I may just have to pop in there and see whats on offer!!!!!!

It is a red parchment heart topped with normal parchment which has been  embossed and pricked and cut. Flowers punched from both the red and white parchment with tiny gem added to centres.

I am going to frame this and put it in the hall along with other pieces of parchment work I have done.
