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!

Two more cards, piles of ribbons and a fabulous box.............


Don't they look gorgeous? While making some of the cards up this week I realised my ribbon tin was looking a bit short on different colours so yesterday while in the town I thought a trip to the market was needed! I got 8 different colours and 2 metres of each so they will last a while.......well maybe not, I do love to use ribbon and it does go quickly! Anyway I thought they looked just lovely all piled up together when I took them out the bag :-) 



Finished another two cards off this morning, the 60th birthday mini above is for my boyfriend's Dad. He loves cars and I wanted one with '60' on it but couldn't find one so I used the mini chart that was in Cross Stitcher magazine on the Hippy Holidays cushion this month and charted a 60 on the suitcase on the roof. I'm pleased with how this turned out! 

This little poppy card was a free kit on Card Shop magazine a while ago, another spare card for future occasions. I've got three more cards stitched up but need some iron on interfacing before I can make them up so they'll be finished later this week.


 I took out a subscription for Cross Stitch Crazy this month, mainly for the free gift when you did I admit, lol! Anyway the free wooden box arrived this week and it's gorgeous! See how lovely it is? The pookies seem to be amazed by it looking at the photo below, lol! Inside is thirty skeins of DMC thread and a free chart to stitch to put in the lid. I'm not keen on the free chart and plan to find something else to stitch for this. It's going to be lined with fabric as it's bare wood inside and then it'll be my posh sewing box for keeping all my bits and bobs in :-) Just need to decide on a chart now.......
