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!

Ami time!

So everything is now at it's new home so I can safely show pictures :-) It's ami swap time!! I sent this to Steph for this month's swap.......


My little pudgey bee  :-) The pattern for this can be bought on Etsy at this shop. He was fun to make and looks cute! The antennae are made from pipe cleaners wrapped in wool with beads on the end which worked out well. My parcel arrived with this fabulous Strawberry kitten.....


How cute is she!! Love the little fuzzy strawberry bag in her hand and her pretty dress, gorgeous! The swap gets better every month, thank you Steph!! :-) I also made her this, thank you to Laura for reminding me about the pattern! 



Also it nearly Laura's birthday, check out her fabulous blog here, it's not for a few days yet but I said she could open her present early and it didn't seem to take any persuasion, lol! So this is Big Blue the monster...


He looked cold being so blue so I made the scarf to keep him cosy!

Yay! I looooove him!! Just about to post pics on my own blog. He's settling in nicely! I love the bee and am very tempted to purchase that particular pattern with my birthday money! The sun is gorgeous too, I just love that pattern. Your strawberry kitten from Steph is gorgeous! I can't wait to receive my ami but it may be a few days because unfortunately the postman took away two parcels today because they didn't fit through the letterbox while I was out, so I'll have to arrange redelivery, humph!
