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!

Wonderful day at the Wetlands Centre :-)

What a wonderful weekend this has been, sunshine and wonderfully warm too :-) Today I went to the local Wetlands Centre with my Boyfriend and my Dad to make the most of the sun. This view over one of the ponds looked gorgeous with all the daffodils out looking lovely. Love the black swans, all swans are beautiful regal looking birds but I do love black ones. This fella was drifting around the pond while his lady was perched on her nest, kept a safe distance from her as didn't fancy getting chased!

Bumped into a couple of Red Breasted Geese, which is a very fitting name :-) They are really tame and are happy to eat seed from your hand very gently. Love the way they look too.

Saw this lady Ne-Ne which is a Hawaiian Goose sitting in a little house on her nest, doesn't she look comfy!

And these are baby Ne-Ne's! Aren't they sweet? These little ones were in the nursery and were born on the 22nd of March so are  about two weeks old.... so cute!!

So it was a gorgeous day out in the spring sunshine, feel like we walked for miles and I'm really tired but it was a great way to spend the afternoon. According to the weather forecast we get rain tomorrow and it starts to get colder again, typical!
