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!

Lets tidy things up a little!


Thank you!....... you lovely people out there for ALL your kind comments on my previous post.
Our home feels strange without him and it will be so for some while now. Sr P is sad too as he loved that cat.
Nevertheless  he is out of pain now and I like to think he is somewhere where he's young again,... bright eyed,sleek coat ....... moving with feline grace ...somewhere...where tantalizing smells lead him on, prancing into grass greener than green;vivaciously chasing everything that twitches or flutters! :-)

Asturias,Spain
*********************************

Did I forget to tell you?....I think I did!
I am participating in the Send a little Love Swap hosted by Tracy at Mad about Bags.


I am pleased to tell you my Swap partner PJ at The Snail Garden has received the parcel safely that I sent her and would you believe it within three days ....incredible...isn't it....makes me feel just a little (I did say a little )bit bad about my criticizing the postal service on my previous post here.





Right now ........I've had a little reminder from one of my bloggy friends that she (her icon) has disappeared from my lovely followers blogroll hence she thought I had deleted her all together.
Actually I have a feeling I could have done that when I was moving things around on my blog a few weeks back or it could be Ghostly Blogger up to its fiendish tricks just to annoy me. However I have a feeling it is really more "Mea Culpa".      Still I have to thank my bloggy friend for this reminder because I have noticed that there is a  follower who is now back and active again and she isn't on my blogroll either so I'm going to be tidying it up over the next few days.
Should you not see your icon there on my blogroll please do not hesitate to yell out loud to me and tell me to get it back on there!!!  Don't be shy now I won't be miffed about it.
My blogroll is the way I keep track of you all ..... I find it the easiest way . If you have another way of doing that and it is quick and easy please do tell me....... don't keep it to yourself 'cos I want to know. :-)







I feel a bit of a GIVEAWAY coming on .....I didn't do one to celebrate 200 followers so that can be the excuse!!!   I think we need some Waiting for Spring cheering up and I hope this will help a little.

Will have to give it some thought and I might even share some of my yarn stash with you....or not....that would mean looming spaces in my stash.....hmmmmm.....will have to think about that too!!

So....keep an eye open peeps!!!


Welcome to my new follower The Vintage Kitten......thank you so much for visiting :-)


Be good now!!

Amanda :-)

  1. I love your thoughts on where Willie is now; I'd like to think our Bailey is showing him around. I envy all you savvy bloggers--I'm clueless, XOXO

  2. I have tried Bloglovin, and my Blogger reading list to keep in contact with blogs I like to follow, but putting blogs on my blog roll seems to be the best way for me to keep track of my blogging friends, too. I have still managed to lose blogs I enjoyed, though, so you are not alone in that Amanda :) Wishing you well! xx

    1. So glad you could visit Gracie :-)
      I use Bloglovin too but like yourself find the blogroll the easiest way to keep track.
      I've also noticed that I'm now not on some followers blog roll on their blogs when I was before but……I'll leave those bloggers to decide if they want to put my icon back on or not.

  3. I know there is a lot of simplifying going on in Blogland. Blogs are looking amazing. Neat,clean and chic. No lists,no tutorials,only graphics. As I say very beautiful. But, I love my blog list because my " friends" are there beside me every day. I don't miss them. I don't have to look for them. They walk with me and my blog. And, yay, I am on your list too.

  4. I'm a bit behind with my blog reading and am just catching up on your posts Amanda, your description of where Willie is now is just beautiful and the memories that you and Mr P shared with Willie will be of comfort when the pain has subsided. I use bloglovin to read my blogs as I tend to read them on my phone, which doesn't help you at all but I thought I would mention it. xx

  7. I'm sure you are quite right in your thoughts about Willie Amanda, he will be playing with my cocker Spaniel Rover and lots of other furry friends, I love my blog roll too and it's by far the best way of keeping up with your blogging friends I think, you can see at a glimpse who has posted. You could of course just have them on your dashboard reader but, I think the blog roll gives a much cosier feel to your blog. :)

    1. Many thanks Meredith

      That's it ….so I'm doing my best to sort out which ones have gone which means going down my extensive reading list.
      I've also noticed that I'm now not on some followers blog roll on their blogs when I was before but…….I'll leave those blogges to decide if they want to put my icon back on or not. I certainly find it easier via my blogroll to keep track.

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 :-)
