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!

Flowers everywhere......and a couple of finishes

Another bunch of gorgeous flowers! The pookies seem to like living next to flowers :-) I found this gorgeous little watering can with this pretty plant in it at Asda this week, isn't it lovely?

It's been a bit of a mad week this week, little Daisy wasn't well with a limp and she was trembling and just wanted to sleep. Took her to the vet and it turned out she was affected by the vaccinations she'd had last week and had a bit of cat flu! There was me thinking the vaccines were meant to stop the diseases not give them to them, lol! So she's been on kitty Ibuprofen all week to lower her temperature, which was 104! Today she seems totally back to normal and is fighting and playing with her sister Poppy just like always. So happy and very relieved! When they are only 11 weeks old it's worrying, they are so tiny it just seems unfair to be ill!

A couple of finishes this week, small stuff stitched over kittens heads when they're asleep on my knee :-)
Firstly a seaside heart, I loved this pattern when I got it ages ago and have been meaning to get round to stitching it so this seemed like a good opportunity. I'm going to hang this on a door handle in my living room.

Also just finished a biscornu today, this blue bird design is from The Floss Box and really pretty colours, a nice simple stitch too. I have no idea where this is going to live yet!

I also stitched a couple of birthday cards but they're not going to be on here until after they've been given so it doesn't spoil the surprise :-) Started a little flower shop today, it's a 3D house that'll be a bag charm/keyring, I love making 3D stuff :-) I'll post pictures when it's finished.

A feast for the eyes young Hippywitch. Gorgeous flowers; fabulous projects to drool over too. I just love those little pookies. The seaside heart is jawdroppingly beautiful too. You really are too clever for words. Hope the kitty Ibuprofen kicks in soon. Poor Daisy. Lx

Gosh poor little Daisy! Hope she gets better soon. Love all your new projects, the seaside heart it stunning and I love the biscornu- I have a version of that pattern from the Floss Box (not sure if it's exactly the same, but the same bird motif certainly). Lovely!

That Seaside heart is so beautiful, and the biscornu is lovely. You have been mega busy, you deserved the flowers after all of that.

Well done on your finishes.

Poor little Daisy, I hope she's feeling better now. x
