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!

Ole! Ole! Ole! colour and flamenco


Andalucia has been celebrating The Day of Andalucia and for those Andalusians who cannot get back home then its fiesta wherever they are:
In Alicante down on the Esplanada de España it has been choc-o-bloc with people watching the various performances of the different Andalusian folkloric groups. The Andalusians who live in Alicante also profess their devotion to their land by dressing up in the typical Sevillana dresses and dancing flamenco to the sound ot the music on the Esplanada.
 Passionate music which gets your toes tapping and your body swaying! Alicante, Esplanada de España.
Hold on I've lost Sr P among all these people!   
Green scarves representing Andalusia.
Vibrant music that rings throughout Alicante City!
Ole! Ole! click and tap to the music!

and then swirl around!
Gorgeous flouncing dresses and beautiful women!

Bright bright colours draw attention!



Another regional group break into song and dance.

A glimpse of bright finery!

Ahhhh! music is joy!   Wonderful morning!

Enjoy your Sunday!

  2. I have castanets that my dad brought back to me when he was in the navy on a "Med" cruise. I learned how to use them and fantasized that I was one of those elegant dancers like you've shown here--what a great memory you've brought back for me, XOXO

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.
