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.

It is a good day

Happy Mother's day !!!!

to all the Mothers out there who celebrate Mother's Day today as they do in this part of the world!

“In a child's eyes, a mother is a goddess. She can be glorious or terrible, benevolent or filled with wrath, but she commands love either way. I am convinced that this is the greatest power in the universe.” 
N.K. Jemisin

Beautiful !!!!
.....and the wonderful thing about a mother's love is that it is the same worldwide. There are no barriers whatsoever; it makes no difference your position in life,age ,race or beliefs as WE ARE united in this sentiment  !!!!!

As one mother to another,another and another love goes out to you all and ...... we will endure through thick and thin .


Plans for today!!!!

I am out of here to enjoy the beautiful blue sky and Spring sunshine!!!  :-)

  6. Happy Mother's Day Amanda, we celebrate next Sunday, but it is also my sosn's birthday so I think we will focus on that instead.

  7. Happy Mothers Day Amanda enjoy your day the weather looks beautiful we are having rain wind and it's freezing. :) xx

  8. Happy mother's day to you, as well! We will celebrate it next Sunday and it is the first time for years that we will stay at home. The last years it was always my grandma's birthday and we had to go by car about 250 km. This year her birthday is on the following Monday so we can stay at home and don't have to get up early. That'S really nice! Enjoy spring! Viola
