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!

And the sun came out and the waiting is over!


The sun shines in all its glory once again.....


 and parts of waste ground have turned miraculously, practically over night, into patches of green meadows dotted with the colour and ....




the wonder of Mother Nature. 
 ********************************
The waiting has come to an end !

 As I mentioned in a previous post I am partnered with Sharon at From my front porch  and we are participating in the Cosy Autumn Swap hosted by Blueberry Heart. We've had to wait a little longer than others who swap within the Uk but finally Sharon has received my parcel and I also received Sharon's parcel last Monday. Perhaps you don't know but Sharon lives over there across the seas in Tennessee USA and I live in Spain ,well that's about a 10 to 12 days mailing span...but it has gone well and nothing has been lost in the post.

So...Peeps here you have what I received from Sharon and you can see what I sent to Sharon on her latest post at From my front porch

Glorious Autumn colours .....you can see the swap theme in all these goodies!
 Can you see that photo frame now isn't that super original just right for Halloween :-)

everything intact no breakages....I'm so lucky!


Look at the gorgeous colour of that yarn I am itching to start something with it!


Nobody can doubt this book marker is for me.....personalized...I love personalized goodies!!!
A maple perfumed candle...how about that...it smells so good I told Sharon I could almost eat it!
and finally two new dishcloths in the most perfect colours for my kitchen as the kitchen colours are different shades of terracotta...how did you know Sharon?

What a fantastic hour I had unpacking this parcel and showing everyone and talking about Sharon over there in Tennessee,about my followers,about blogging and blogland. Your ears just must have been burning!!!     
Thank you so much Sharon everything was more than perfect! :-)


a happy and content

Amanda :-)

  2. What wonderful gift you received in the Swap. Yes some of those candles smell good enough to eat, I do agree. Thanks for stopping by Amanda, my neck is an old injury, worsened with age, from an accident long ago. I am happy the Sun is shining, and sad to hear of the losses. Keep smiling ... Cindy.
