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!

Monsters are appearing!

This week I've been making another monster, one bed sock (the other is about to be started) and a surprise for someone's birthday who reads this so I'm not telling no matter how hard my arm is twisted :-)

So let me introduce you to The Star Spangled Monster!


The idea was growing in my mind as I made the last monster Egbert, it just seemed to fit to do the different areas of the American flag. Anyway I hope you like him :-)

I also listed this hanging decoration in my shops this week, I made it a few months ago and it just sat there waiting for me to do something with it so I figured why not.....


I do love the beaded tassel on this, here's a closer look at it...


I used clear beads and a silver floral cutaway heart to make it a bit sparkly and pretty. I was so pleased with it I've logged it for future use :-)

So not an awful lot happening in my world at the moment which is brilliant and just the way I like it! I'm at my happiest when left to play with my threads and wool and life doesn't get in the way!

So I'll leave you with a link, check out this Pay It Forward giveaway on the lovely Annaboo's website HERE she'd love you all to go over and enter, don't forget to say hello and check out her fabulous crochet korknisse while you're there :-)  Speaking of which I made a couple this week, nearly forgot! Check them out!


Aren't they fabulous! I need to make more and the toadstool house so they have somewhere to live too......
