Welcome to my blog!

I'm Lori and I love to craft. I cross stitch, knit and crochet and anything else that takes my fancy! I love to make amigurumi and other knitted and crocheted characters.
I live in the north east of England and when I'm not busy with thread or wool I love to read thrillers and watch things on the TV that make me laugh. I have a love of tattoos too and have quite a collection!

Easter bunnies, another card and a box lid picture........

So it's ami swap time again being the end of the month and it finally happened!! We have been swapping for a couple of years now and we both love the same patterns so it was bound to happen one day that we would both make the same thing.......... The gorgeous bunny above is mine from Steph and the one below is Steph's from me, they look a bit different and I love mine so much!!! Thanks for another fab swap Steph my lovely bunny is so pretty :-)

Had a custom order for a card again. The request was for a flowery/gardening picture and blank for any occasion, thought this would fit the bill nicely! Love how it turned out and I've been having to stitch small things over the top of the new kittens as they're spending so much time on my knee :-)

Started this birdhouse design because I loved it, no idea what it was going to be used for and thought maybe a card. Then I realised it was the perfect size for the lid of my new wooden box so ta-da!! I love the bright colours and folky style and will stitch them separate for cards I think too, aren't they pretty :-)

Oh my word, Lori, I can't believe you did the same pattern!! They are both so different though, but absolutely gorgeous. I love your card, wonderful colours, and the box looks just perfect. You have been a busy bee, even with the new additions to your family!!

How lovely! I haven't stitched anything for my box yet and not sure when I'll get round to it, but like you I'll pick something else as i don't like the free design either.

i love your bunnies too!

k, lets try this again...darn! I've forgotten what i said now and of course it was intelligent and witty.....HAHAHAHHAH....ok so it was probably more rambly and loopey, but hey! i can pretend ^_^

Great minds eh! it was bound to happen ^__^ Love the card and your box looks so beautiful...and the lid shuts on yours! Think i may have crammed a wee bit too much into mine.^__^
