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!

Gorgeous flowers and another page of Cozy Night done :-)

How's about these for cheerful sunny flowers?! Went to the local Aldi for milk yesterday and these were just sitting there saying 'buy me, buy me....' So I did :-) Thought after the awful week last week it would be good to bring a little bit of colour and happiness in to the house and these certainly make me smile.

Late last night I finished pages 8 and 11 of Cozy Night too, YAY! Only one and a bit pages left now to finish her off, here she is then.....

Isn't she looking great? Today I've been knitting before starting the next page though, a very cute ami kitten, got the pattern a couple of weeks ago and I was waiting to knit it until I finished the page on Cozy. I do try to keep the number of projects on the go at once down to a (sort of) minimum, lol!

Hi Alison, good to meet you and thanks for following me :-)
I started Cozy Night around January. It hasn't taken too long with being a Quick Stitch and me being totally addicted and stitching for hours on end every day has helped too!
I'm halfway through the last page now, trying to stitch bits in between the kittens sitting on me and stopping progress!

Hi Lori
I Started my first HAED QS 2 days ago, it's faces of faery 73 I'd already got all my colours together for it but I wish I'd chose cozy night to start first now! I'm also quite addicted to stitching (once the kids are in bed) I usually stitch for about 3 hours. Ive only done about 400 stitches so far but I love it already! I'm aiming for finishing in about 4 months.
