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!

Fabulous quilt squares and a simple cat design

In the last two weeks I've been stitching a couple of squares that will go toward a quilt. An online friend asked if I would stitch one for her and I'm having such fun I've finished two so far :-) The designs were drawings on the theme of a heart drawn by disabled children in the school where her daughter attends. This is the first one by Jessica.....

This one is Shannon's as you can see, aren't they fabulous!! I love the way the hearts and flowers on this one are smiling :-) So I'll send off the second one tomorrow and see if any more need stitching, they are so sweet and really fun to do too!

After finishing the square last night I thought I'd stitch a cat design I had found somewhere on the internet (can't remember where now but it was a French website). It took a grand total of two hours to do and I think it looks great. No idea what to do with it but it'll come to me, maybe a small cushion?? Who knows!

Anyway busy now making an amigurumi for the monthly swap, not telling what yet!

I love the heart idea, traslating kids work to stiching. I haven't seen that before but its definitely one to remember. The cat is fab, looks almost ghostly.
