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!

A few finishes :-)

So last Friday I was busy knitting the second sock for this pair of bedsocks.....


when I came to shape the heel and reached for the pattern and it had vanished! I searched the house and realised I must have accidentally thrown it out while sorting out some magazines the day before, ooopsy! Luckily for me the ebay seller I bought the pattern off still had some so I had to buy it again to get them finished, lol! So after all that here they are.... I say bedsocks as that's what the pattern calls them but I wear them for lounging around the house to keep my feet cosy. This is my second pair and more will follow as they are lovely and warm and comfy :-) 

Also made some more cards this week, these three are made with different sizes of the same image.....




This one is the strawberry girl and she's going to be my sister-in-laws birthday card.....


and what I'm busy with at the moment is the flower panel for my kitchen curtain. As I've said before it needs to be 69 inches long so it's a lot of flowers!! However I think I might be on my last one, YAY! Need to measure it after this one and make sure but I'm so happy, getting a bit bored of flowers now......


Of course now it's almost done we've decided to do up the kitchen so the curtain I made a few weeks ago for this to be stitched on is going to be no good as I want to change the colour of the walls! But I plan to make a white half curtain and stitch this along the bottom so it will be used anyway. I'm going to add coloured ribbon to it to match whatever colour the walls end up........maybe green? Still undecided but if the curtain is white it won't matter :-) I'm finishing the final (orange) flower today and then I plan to start something new, I have a few charts that I'm planning on just need to decide which one first.

Oh, I love all these things! The flowers are gorgeous. I really enjoy getting into a detailed, long project like that one. Maybe I am a glutton for punishment.

Your cards are so pretty. Clever lady.
