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!

I've opened a shop on etsy!!


So this week has been busy! I decided that I would open up shop on etsy to sell my things and have spent days getting things sorted. Everything from photographs, which were tricky as the weather has been so dull and grey getting them light enough meant dashing to take a pic every time the sun came out for two minutes to weighing everything for postage costs and then converting all the prices to dollars. Now I have my first items up in the shop though and got all excited this morning when someone favourited my latest make! Here it is.....



pretty little felt hearts. I've enjoyed sitting stitching these so much I've done 21 so far, lol! Anyway the shop is  HERE so wish me luck!

Been busy making too, something for the giveaway which will start on Saturday so don't forget to come back and enter!

Hey! Well done! Your Etsy shop looks great. I love your toys and your cross stitch is lovely (so neat). Red on white is really popular so it will be fun to see what sells first. Had you considered doing a cross stitch fancy (curly, old fashioned style) initial on one of your white hearts. I reckon they could be really popular. Maybe make to order..... Good luck with your new shop.

Thanks! Good idea for the initials, I had thought of maybe stitching initials on some hearts, red and white would be a great idea. Need to go on a hunt for a great alphabet, think I remember seeing one somewhere :-)
