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!

The Fat and Thin giveaway

and.......No...... I'm not insinuating problems with ones weight !!!!!!!

Way way back during the torrid hot month of August I did announce I was going to do a Giveaway to celebrate my blogaversary which was 4years last July. That was my intention but then things got busy ,busy and too much was going on.  The busy busy business has lasted up to now.
I am very quickly going to say this ...make sure you have your glasses on....I have time now ...... but don't read it aloud...someone might hear!!! 

In fact it is the Fat and the THIN Giveaway

Naturally my giveaway is to do with craft and most particularly with crochet. As I have frequently mentioned over these four blogging years I am a crochet addict and although I like other crafts I always return to the comfort of crochet.  Therefore the main focus of the goodies in my giveaway are these two thingamajigs without them we wouldn't get very far in crochet.

Now there is a fat chunky one:


and a thin skinny one:


but just as not to be a total meanie I am adding this one too:

and some super soft yarn from Coats

and there will be a few other bits too but you'll have to watch this spot over the rest of the week to see what they are
...........surprise surprise :-)

What do you have to do to participate???   Not much!!!

Be a blogger and follower and post this

 my Giveaway link or a mention on your blog please .

The Giveaway is open to all bloggers Worldwide and beyond and the winner will be selected on Twelfth Night that is the Night of the Kings(here in Spain) or the night before Epiphany elsewhere or just plain 5th  January ! :-)

keep well

Well received ...sigh!!!


I made a shawl for my daughter for Christmas. I wanted a large shawl so she could wrap it around herself when she is at the computer in the school reception. It is a very drafty area.
As I mentioned I did want it large but after blocking it was really big .

I was a little bit worried about that but  she loved it so that's a relief!

I used Katia planet yarn and Nº 7 hook. It is a free Red Heart pattern. The Top-Down Shawl.

enjoy your holidays!!

Time for the Angel!

I've forgotten how to write blog posts!!!!!! Well...nearly!!!

My mind is blank so over the next few days I am going to write short posts to reactivate brain that is!!!

Here she is folks out in the world she is in all her gloriousness!!!
Ms Christmas Angel was given to me by a friend a few years back....and despite a couple of near fatal incidents (mostly Willie the cats fault) she is still going strong.

I've finally got my tree up with 2 days to go...phew!!!

 Now,before I forget, can I just ask you to check and see if you are on my blog roll here

 Yesterday I discovered that Blogger had repeated its antics of eliminating my blog roll and I had to set it up again.  If you followers and blog-mates find you do not appear there and you should please give me a shout and I'll add you. Thanks :-)

 I have managed to keep crocheting,not as much as I would like but enough to feed my addiction.

You know it being Spain it is lovely during the day here but bitterly cold and frosty 7:00am mornings I thought a crocheted woolly hood for Cookie baby (Grand-daughter) would do nicely as she waits for her bus to get to college.

Best of all she likes it and uses it!!!!

 That is it for now but I'll be back soon with another post  :-)

Keep well

Amanda :-)
