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!

Presence

 I have titled this post Presence because that is what I am and have been since my last post here in March. I continue to read posts and have commented on a few....not many nevertheless I am still here. I am very reluctant to give up blogging and remove my blog all together! I just don't want to do that so for the moment I have created a facebook social space for crochet and craft. I seem to be able to manage that better at present.    I would be delighted if you would like to join me there either by hitting like or follow on my new faceblog:
Craftyinthemed social facebook page 

There is also a link to facebook on the right column of this page.






Naturally I haven't given up crochet at all and one of my recent projects was a circular shawl for a new great nephew who arrived the day before yesterday.
 Lots of bunnies. The babe's mother likes rabbits!!





I also want to tell you about this group i have joined you may have already heard about it. It is called
Random Acts of Crochet Kindness a group which was created by Olivia,a young lady who crochets in the UK.
Here is her interview and she will tell you all about it

Olivia's BBC radio interview

 and should you like to join. Random acts of crochet kindness


 She started the group on 31st August and now look at the amount of members she has got. People have joined from all over the world to spread crochet happiness and are they friendly yes they are! There was a lady who joined yesterday who lives on Sister Island in the Yukon,Canada.....long way away!!!

Anyhow I'll just show you a few of the crochet goodies  (it doesn't just have to be flowers!) I have been placing here and there in my neighbourhood to spread some crochet kindness as Olivia says!!


 I want to give this one to one of the post office assistant who always gives you a smile .


  I left this one in the post office with my tag message.



This one on a bench in front of the retirement home.


These two hanging from a soft drinks dispenser. I saw the young lady who picked it up and she quickly clipped it to her bag!!!

Its fun and I like the idea that I am spreading some kindness and hopefully getting people to smile!


Keep well!!

Amanda

    1. What an amazing circular shawl, dear! I love the bunnies on it! πŸ‘Œ ✨

      Thanks so much for your visit to my blog and kind comment. It's nice to read you're going ahead with your blog. I like FB and SM, of course, because they keep us tuned. But I can't help to think they are the houses of a very rich someone who lives in Silicon Valley. I also believe that our blogs are like our home, a place of our own where to receive to our friends. And that's the reason why, despite I can't write posts as often as I'd like, I try to keep my blog alive.
      Have a great new week ahead, dear! πŸ’• πŸƒπŸŒΈπŸƒ

  7. Many thanks Celia for calling in. I am inclined to agree with your description of facebook where I am not so comfortable in my role of crocheter and in fact I am eager to return to my blog where I am more at ease surrounded by my blog friends some of whom I have had since 2009 and new ones I hope to meet here in blogland in the future. As you so well described it our blogs are like a part of our home...very apt. I am determined to continue with my blog even if I cannot post as much as I would like to. keep well Amanda x

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 :-)
