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!

So today is a rainy dull horrible day here, typical summer day for the north east of England! Been to get my flowers today, aren't they nice to brighten up the day :-)

Well last night Daisy decided it would be really good to try and climb the nets in my kitchen window and basically killed them! I was planning to replace them soon as I had the flower panel stitched for the bottom of my new blind/curtain thingy, it's like a half curtain I had planned and don't know how to describe it! It'll cover some of the window and not get in the way of my plants too. So I took them down and today I made the new curtain and will just have to add the stitched flowers when they're finished. At least it'll spur me on ever time I look at it! Here's the plain curtain, the stitched strip will be added along the bottom edge. Think it'll look pretty with the flowers on, bit boring now though.

Got a gorgeous photo of Poppy yesterday sitting in the sun on the coffee table, all her pretty colours show up in the light. So here's one of my lovely girls,

Oh naughty kitten! My poor Peggy's sick, but it's just a tummy bug so hopefully she'll get better soon!

I'm sure your blind will look lovely when done - just hope she doesn't have a go at theat one too!
