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!

The secret stuff I couldn't show before :-)

Now my friend Chris's birthday was yesterday and I can show the things I'd made for her over the last few weeks :-)

She's a fan of beach huts so I stitched some and then wondered what to do with them, I thought about a mini cushion, maybe a full size cushion.......... I settled on a tote bag though and here it is....


and a close up of the beach huts.....


I thought the blue ric-rac was a bit like waves and added some beach charms too. The lining is bright stripes like a deck chair!


Chris also loves pigs so I did this little hanging cushion of birthday piggy's...


I stitched a bookmark too...


and here's the card I made too.


So that's all the stuff I've been keeping back from showing! Happy birthday Chris!

Oh my word, they are all BEAUTIFUL! Those little piggies are gorgeous, the tote bag is stunning, and I love the bookmark- did you stitch that on paper or fabric? The card is super cute too. And I concur with Chris, you are a most wonderful friend!!!
