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!

Joining in

You are sure to know about Attic24: Granny Bunting for Yarndale and Lucy's invitation to the craft blog world to participate in the next Yarndale festival in Yorkshire in England in September. Lucy has posted for us a granny square pattern tutorial on her blog but we can also add the embelishments that we like to the basic pattern.
It seemed to me that due to where I live and that my blog name coincides with that, the most logical theme I should concentrate on for my bunting was the sea and to be more precise the Mediterranean.
Therefore I have concentrated on four different aspects of the Med and have tried to capture that in my four bunting triangles:
1. The deep deep dark blue sea where the whales bask and other larger sea creatures can be found.

2. The crystal clear tempting sapphire blue allows you to see multiple shoals of fish swimming by.


3.The hot Mediterranen sun above turns the reflection of the waters to many shades of blue.

4.The shallows turning the waters to a lighter misty blue and then greyish to white as the waves are formed to finally lap gently on the sand pushing up pebbles and shells on to dry land.



Now then should you find this post a little disjointed and full of punctuation errors it is because I am using a new blogging app called blogsy on my ipad and its my very first post from it. I really dont know how to use this app as yet. I hope I am going to be able to blog en route when I am out and about :-)
Amanda :-)


PS: I get an odd delight in thinking my bunting will be fluttering in the breeze over there in YORKSHIRE!

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 :-)
