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!

Village show results from yesterday :-)

Well this is the third post in three days!! That's a lot for me, lol! Guess I have a lot to show at the moment. So the local village show was yesterday afternoon and off I trotted with my entries. I showed some of the things a couple of weeks ago but here they are ready for the day.

The Christmas decoration category, I entered this holly hanging with a beaded tassel.  I got 2nd for this :-) 

Christmas card. My santa got no prize :-(

Any crochet item. I decided to enter my crochet Hello Kitty, made this ages ago but just grabbed it as an extra entry! Turned out to be a good move, it came 2nd and a lady bought her too! I was just standing looking at the other entries and she said 'what a shame they aren't for sale, I love this!', so I said 'it's for sale if you want it as it's mine!' So off kitty went to her new home :-)

Lastly my sampler which I framed and mounted all in white. This was in the embroidered picture section and I got 1st! Yippee! I won £11 in M&S vouchers, £5 for a first and two £3 for the second places, which I sold to my Mam as I don't shop in M&S, lol!

Oh yes, I won a bottle of wine in the raffle too :-) A pretty good haul!

Hi Annaboo,
Thanks for all your comments!

I just use the cheap acrylic stuff that costs about £1.20 a ball for ami's, it comes in so many colours it's the best I've found :-)
