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!

An award :-)

Well looky here, an award! I was given this by Ali and her lovely blog. Thanks so much Ali!

Here's the rules,

After receiving the award you then need to:
  1. In the same post, add the Versatile Blogger Award.
  2. In the same post, thank the blogger who nominated you in a post with a link back to their blog.
  3. In the same post, share 7 completely random pieces of information about yourself.
  4. In the same post, include this set of rules.
  5. Inform each nominated blogger of their nomination by posting a comment on each of their blogs.
  6. ooh and forward it to 15 other bloggers.
So onto number 3, can I come up with 7,

1. I have 11 tattoos, you can see some of them on this post HERE

2. I was a complete rock chick in the late 80's and used to use a huge can of extra strong hairspray up in four days, you could have whacked me over my back combed head with a mallet and I wouldn't have felt a thing  :-)

3. I used to have my hand pierced, the web between the first finger and thumb but it kept getting threads caught on it so I took it out, I mean I couldn't stitch properly!

4. I love loads of different music, I'll let you into a secret, I have the greatest hits of Andy Williams, The Wurzles and Chas and Dave in my collection along with loads of AC/DC, lol!

5. I did fashion design at college when I left school for two years and worked for a fab clothes shop in Newcastle where I made the clothes upstairs and got to wear them for free :-) Unfortunately the shop closed and moved too far away so I left but it was great fun while it lasted!

6. I adore teddy bears and have a house full of them

7. I love Carry On films, the original St Trinians and Police Acedemy films too, I love daft stuff :-)

So yay! That's seven!

So I now pass this on to,

Cute crocheted creations

Cucki's stitching cove

Lucy 'in the sky'

The Dotty One

Ramblings of a biscornu addict

Show and Tell

Butterfly wings




To any I missed I love to read all of the blogs I follow :-)

I'll be back in a couple of days then when I can show some things I've been busy with (waiting for the ami swap parcel to arrive with Steph first) and the lovely giveaway parcel I won too :-)
