Crafty in the Med

I am here to enjoy meeting other bloggers and to share my love of craft ,mostly crochet, my thoughts and my daily happenings here in Alicante,Spain, my adopted country. I belong to a local choir because singing and music makes me happy. Flea markets and book shops are two of my favourite places to be. I read lots......sci´fi/fantasy,buried treasure, and off world adventures. I have a passion for history! I walk and walk and walk for about 10 months per year during the hot months I swim.

Surprise! Surprise!

I told you there would be some more bits for My Giveaway.....

but first of all


I am trying to make my Fat and Thin Giveaway as craft orientated as possible and also covering where possible everyone's craft likes.  The saffron is for the cooks out there but unfortunately if the winner lives over the pond in Australia,NZ or USA I'll have to change it for something else. I do not want to risk the parcel being confiscated!!!!

Remember this????

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 ! :-)

Welcome! Welcome to my two new followers

keep well

Amanda :-)


  1. Happy New Year Amanda, have a wonderful 2016 xx

    1. Happy New Year Cheryl ....wishing you and yours a fantastic 2016 too! A x

  2. I've posted and mentioned it, but don't enter me for the Giveaway, as I'm not a crocheter. The only time I did crocheting I ended up with a tiny yamulke for my teddy bear, as it wouldn't lay flat! Though if you want somewhere to send the saffron, I'll take it off your hands!!

    1. Hi there, I'll enter you for the giveaway .... and thank you for the mention. If you win I'll make sure the goodies are you orientated including the saffron :-)
