Update on my trip to La Linea

Slowly getting back into the swing of things and finally taken organized my photos onto the computer :)

While in La Linea I met up with a wonderful group of ladies a picture of whom you  can see in my iPod post here:- 

I came to know of these ladies from their blog Nuestras Meriniendas Y Manulidades   and when I learned they lived in my mum’s home town and I was going to visit my mum I contacted Mayte to arrange a meet up for coffee.

Little did I know at the time that she was going to whisk me off to meet all the wonderful ladies of her group.  What a fabulous time I had.  I felt like a celebrity and was dumb struck when I was presented with some wonderful gifts. 


 From Caty

Here is the most beautiful hand dyed and painted silk scarf from Caty.


 From Maria Angeles

Here is the fabulous crossed stitched pinkeeper made by Mari Angeles.

Above is me fanning myself with the hand painted Spanish fan…  I  really needed to use it too :)  It was so hot!

Then the cutest of broaches, a felt Spanish lady and last but not least a lottery ticket from Mayte.

What a whirl wind afternoon.  I returned home to my mum’s 4 hours later to discover her worried and about to call the police.  But my nonchalant husband said he’d have started to worry only if I hadn’t returned home at all that evening. LOL…

Muchas gracias amigas para un tiempo muy feliz!!  Besitos,
