Crafty in the Med

I'm here to enjoy meeting other crafters and to share my ideas and projects. I love to crochet,cross stitch and embroidery but I'm keen to try new crafts too. I love music and I love to sing! Singing makes me happy. I collect jugs....its their shape I think! I am addicted to yarn and buttons. I get lost in book shops and can spend all morning there and I absolutely adore rummaging in flea markets. I love to read sci´fi/fantasy,buried treasure, and off world adventures. I have a passion for history! I would be the first passenger on the first time machine ! I BELIEVE IN MAGIC!

BYE BYE BB  safe journey back to the UK

 If anyone would like to help keep this chain going and crochet a square for a good cause (it need only be one) please pop into Mum's Simple Living blog here.


Thank you so much you lovely lovely bloggers; Mrs Thrifty, Sue and MummyHen who have nominated me for the One Lovely Blog award. 
If you haven't visited their blogs before, do pop in and say hello.


The rules for the One Lovely Blog award are as follows:
Thank the person/persons who nominated you
Share 7 things about yourself
Nominate some blogs that you admire.
so...here we go....
1. I am too outspoken for my own good. 
2. I must have music in my life.
3. I dream of buying a summer cottage back home in Somerset.
4. I have been blessed or cursed with the most vivid imagination.
5. I would like to learn Japanese. 
6. I studied classical ballet for five years.  
7. My favourite dessert is my  mother's steamed chocolate pudding topped with Devonshire clotted cream!

Ass for nominating several blogs for this award.... I see that most of you already have this award and I also feel I cannot individualize as I think all the blogs I follow are scrumptious,fantastic and and and.........
therefore
I'm going to echo what Emma at The Log Cabin has said on her latest post ,which I feel is more than appropriate:
I'd like to  point you in the direction of the blogs I love to follow. They're all listed in my sidebar and some are crafty blogs and some aren't but they're all great reads so please pop over for a visit. I've made some lovely friends from that list.
and I'll second that Emma!!!!

Have a great day!!!


Amanda :-)

  2. Congratulations Amanda! I used to tell my eldest I was a Prima Ballerina, she believed me for many years! I'm not at all graceful so it was quite funny! Ada :)

    1. Hi
      Thanks for your comments. I'm hardly graceful now thanks to the extra kilos due to my lazy thyroid. I must admit I did love my ballet classes and I had my dreams up until I was 16 and then well....I wanted other things! :-)

      Keep well

      Amanda :-)

I love to receive your comments and I read all of them. Unfortunately real life does get in the way sometimes, so as much as I would like to I cannot always reply to every comment, however I do my very best to keep in touch.
