AN 8 HOUR VISIT!
A few weeks ago a friend ,over there in Lincolnshire, mentioned to me on facebook that she and her husband would be would be going on a 14 day cruise in November along the Mediterranean coast on the ship
Azura Western Mediterranean Cruise .
While chatting online I commented to her wasn't it a shame that Alicante wasn't one of the cruise's port of calls. A few days later I received the fantastic response that she had checked the itinerary and Alicante would be their second port of call after Gibraltar. They would dock in during the night and leave the evening time of the next day.
Now when I want to be a fast thinker I can be a fast thinker ....
I quickly checked my work schedule for Friday 9th November and saw that I had just the one early morning class finishing at 10:30am and nothing else for the rest of the day. Needless to say I was back on the facebook chat like a shot and sorted with my friend that we could meet up and go out for the day here in Alicante.
The weeks have passed and today is the day .... a lovely break away from routine and a chance to meet up with some friends again after two years. Fun Fun time folks :-)
Now then as circumstances would have it this friend is also my sister's friend and they live near each other, so naturally I had to send a little something back with my friend for my sister....a little from me to you gift.

I had to make these fingerless gloves in dark hardy colours because my sister is a school bus driver and the gloves she wears get grubby very quickly. She doesn't like fussy garments so I only allowed myself to add one small lilac flower and embroidered stem to the right glove. The glove pattern is not my own and I shall add the link to the pattern but at this moment dear bloggers I cannot as I must fly to work and afterwards catch a boat.
PS: Embroidery on gloves inspired by Penelope's gloves' pattern on L is for Love
