Fire Mountain Gemstone and Bead collection catalogue available to be seen in Estepona.

Do you enjoy using gemstones and beads in your needlework.

Would you like to learn how to make some fantastic jewellery?

For all your jewellery making needs.  I have a catalogue you can browse through, to enhance your wardrobe and your home d├ęcor.

I love the catalogue and would like to share it with you.  If you live in or around the Estepona area of Andalusia I would be happy to bring it to show you - especially if you get a couple of your friends together and we can share it in a more fun setting.  Call me 952897862  email me on suecaroline@hotmail.co.uk

We sometimes prefer to look at a book rather than the screen have a coffee and chat and get excited about the different gemstones and beads available.





Beadspread


I really enjoyed making this bedspread, it took me about 3 weeks to do at night.  At the time I was having trouble sleeping and found being creative a really great help.

I loved to watch how the work developed and as it is one of my latest crochet blankets I thought I would show it to you.

I normally do it like a square but this time I choose to go in a different format, I think that this way really looks great.

I also have done a few for the dogs beds, also I have crochet some dog coats as they all feel the cold in the winter here in Spain.  Sometimes it gets cold in the house  - yet is warm outside, but sitting inside in the evening can be very chilly.  We recently started to up the fires on but it has to be really chilly otherwise you get overheated really quickly.

Hope you like what I have created.

Hand made Tea cosy and table mats, egg cosy too.



I recently enjoyed creating these lovely items.  Matching them together and deciding how they should look was really exciting.

I enjoyed knitting these items

I am a keen hand knitter and use a whole variety of yarns, including this double knitting I picked up from the local chinese shop in Estepona.

I love to experiment with colours and styles.  I hope you like them.

Recently Created by Sue Caroline

 I really enjoyed making these.

I have these patterns and order the yarns from the UK.


The gloves were made for my daughter- she suffers with Reynaulds Syndrome and therefore needs longer length cuffs, they look really good on her and she says they feel really comfy.  

This is my drapenecked lightweight sweater done in Opium yarn which I import from the UK.
I really enjoyed making this.



Using the basic pattern to create this extra long tunic for me.  This can be worn both as a dress or over trousers as seen here.  This is also Opium yarn as above.  

The yarns I use really do make the knitting experience really enjoyable for me.  I never quite know just how the designs are going to turn out.

The Riot mulitcoloured yarns especially have a special quality to them, they knit up soft and comfy.

I love to make hats

I made this first as an experiment with a pattern.  I wanted to see how it would look with sequins added and am very pleased with the result.

This hat was made out of some amazing Riot DK from King Cole.  They have such a wide range of yarns which I am brining over from the UK to sell in Spain.

I am selling my hats for 20€

I have a wide range of yarns I am using and will be adding more to the page as I progress.

These hats are hand made and I have and do enjoy making them.

I have recently also been asked to make a sweater in Mohair so am looks like my skills will not be wasted.

These hats are samples.  The multicoloured one I sold the day after I finished it. It was a one off unique hat.  The proud owner of it was very pleased with it.
