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!

  6. Hi Amanda, great to see you have the Liebster award and interesting to read your answers. Hey spooky I don't like the restrictions of wearing a watch, I often have a little fob watch with me instead.
    Thank you so much for nominating my blog, I actually had the Liebster award some time ago so I don't think I will get involved with it again but it's nice to be thought of.
    I'm having a busy spell making stuff with an easter theme right now. Happy crocheting,
    Sally xx

  10. Congratulations Amanda! I like your answers, similar to what mine would be...white wine, thunder storms (I LOVE these!!) etc, and the 'watch' thing, I cannot wear a watch unless it has a battery and even then they seem to go wrong!! Must have too much electricity in my body haha !! :)

  12. Hi, Amanda! I saw on the news at RTVE last night the weather you guys have been having. It was very impressive to watch the tornadoes hit the ocean so close to the beach. And all the snow all over Andalucia. Just checking on you. I hope all is well with you and your family.

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.

Amanda :-)
