A very crafty summer

Hello lovelys.

Well life has been very busy for us here in the sussex countryside.  The summer of 2013, has brought endless summer days, warm summer evenings, and a decision on where we are moving to in Spain

Details of our Spanish move can be seen on my other blog Spanish Steps where I have recorded our journey so far.

Crafting has become an important part of my life, as I start to spend more "me" time.  My last post saw the pictures of my early attempts.

Since then I have continued to Crochet, and am really enjoying this craft, so far I have completed 3 blankets, these two are simple crochet stitches and they are for my  daughters.

 FInally, my lovely fina blanket, which is full if scrummyness and I just love sitting under is the classic Granny Stripe blanket

Finally we get to the free digital kits


Finally two freebies

Finally a few scenes from the summer of 2013

Kits and Crochet

Hello everyone.  Well today we have loads of freebies for you.  I have been finding freebies for you for a while now and have had nearly 25,000 visitors which is amazing, but very few leave comments, it would be great to know what you are looking for, what you do with the kits etc. Where you are from, many are from outside the UK, even if you leave a comment in another language, I would find your lives interesting.

I have also been busy with my crochet

Some lovely new freebies for you

Life has been busy and a little stressful recently.  As you know, we are planning to move to Spain at the end of this year, so that is taking up a fair amount of our time, so much to think about. Plus my husband, has had a problem, with his back, and is due to have an operation on his spine in July, so he is fairly incapacitated at the moment, so leaving me to cope with everything, he feels really bad watching me do all the stuff, gardening, lawn mowing, shopping etc. I do feel sorry  for him, but fingers crossed, post op his life will get back to some sense of normaility.

Any way, here are the freebies I have found for you

A lovely site with free brushes, masks etc

Visit..........Cottage Arts

Some lovely papers  from  The Coffee Shop...Lovely blog for scrappers

A great kit............Lovely colours  


Another little gem

Hope you enjoy.

March Madness

Hello everyone.

Well it has been a very busy week.  I have had emergency dental treatment for an abscess on my tooth and now have to have root canal treatment... getting over it now.. but boy, is toothache a horrid thing to have, hot pokers driving up into your head!.  The husband had to attend the emergency room, he has a back problem, and the sciatica became unbearable so injections and several hours of medication later he is nicely doped up and resting.
So the plus side is time for scrapping,

So here are some recent kits that  I have found for you to play with.  Please always remember to say thanks to the designers who give up there time and skills to provide these free for you to use.

There are loads of freebies on this site.
