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!

Another busy week....

Been busy this week with things I can tell you about and things I can't! There are a couple of occasions coming up and the people involved read this so have to keep them under my hat until then. But I can tell you about this!

Now I have a rule, I NEVER stitch Christmas before Halloween. It's a hard and fast rule.....usually! But this year two of the categories in the village show are Christmas decoration and Christmas card so I'm having to make an exception. I have to say it's strange stitching holly in August even if the weather is rubbish and very un-summery.

So this is the decoration I stitched this week, it was going to be a biscornu but I changed my mind, partly so I didn't have to stitch both sides I admit :-)  I added loads of beads both around the edges and the tassel which I made for it too so it's really sparkly! So next the card and I won't forget to put pictures of the other stuff up at a later date, it'll be around two weeks-ish when it's safe

That's gorgeous! I love all the beading :D They'd be mad not to give you a prize in the show!! No Christmas stitching before halloween? Very sensible but I think I'd be at panic stations by then!! Haha. I should probably follow your example though so I don't stress myself out this year!
