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!

Finished Dolly Mama....

So I have decided now that this is finished I'm making a tote bag from it, needs washed and ironed first though. Love these designs :-) I went to the big craft shop on Tuesday and got some black fabric to use for the bag and a lot more stuff, went a bit daft, lol! I bought a big stash of 14ct and 18ct aida and a couple of metres of blue and white gingham as I'd decided to make a blind for the kitchen window. For the blind I'm going to stitch a strip for the bottom of a chain of Gerbera's in bright colours, started the first flower in purple yesterday but it might take a little while as the window is almost 2 metres wide so a lot of flowers to go yet!

Took Poppy and Daisy to the vet this morning for their last vaccinations so they're now asleep after the trauma of it all wore them out :-) They are so different in the carrier it's funny, Daisy will just sit down and chill out and Poppy act's like she's being taken to her execution with wailing and reaching through the bars on the door and generally making a right fuss! Anyway they're sorted out for the next year so YAY!

Not a lot happening at the moment really, weather is blowing a gale so I'm waiting for that to drop as I have some sunflower plants waiting to be planted outside. Don't want them getting blown to bits straight away so hopefully in the next few days they can go outside as they're getting too big for their pots on my bathroom windowsill.
