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!

Flower heart

Finished off the latest heart hanging this week. This is a freebie chart from here There are some pretty ones on this French website. It seems that in trying to find smaller stuff to stitch over the top of kittens heads while they sleep I appear to be stitching a lot of hanging hearts! I guess now I've run out of walls for my stitching I've started on the doorhandles, lol!

Started stitching a Dolly Mama's kit a couple of days ago and almost finished it now, just have to finish off the border! Such a quick stitch and great fun to do with all the bright colours. I'm now thinking I might make it into a tote bag but haven't settled on anything yet as I originally thought I'd make a cushion........the bag sounds pretty good though!

I decided I hate the voiles in my kitchen window yesterday, just one of those 'why the hell did I put them there!' moments :-) I want to make some sort of cafe curtain/half blind type of thing to cover the top half and leave the bottom uncovered as we aren't overlooked. I'm going to buy a big piece of evenweave or linen this week and plan to stitch something bright and colourful along the bottom, maybe some bright flowers or butterflies...... Should be fun!
