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!

Finished bunting and the travelling craft box goodies!

Hello everyone and welcome to my new followers :-)

Been a busy week this week as my boyfriend was off work on holiday so my routine was thrown right off! Tried to keep organised and make time to get things made but it can be a bit tricky when you're also trying to get taken out and spoilt too :-)

The travelling craft box is now with Kayla so I can now show what I made for the box and what goodies I kept too!

These are the gorgeous things I kept...

The gorgeous biscornu box charm (which is on my bag now), lovely bookmark and button heart by Kerry and the pretty pincushion and ami heart and monster by Laura All lovely treasures that were tough to choose from the box of loveliness :-)

To replace them I added these....

a cute baby octopus ami, felt heart, crochet flower brooch, stitched bookmark, 3D birdhouse and cupcake keyring. Can't wait for the box to come back my way again :-)

I finished off the mushroom bunting too for my stall, that was fun to make! I made each mushroom with different embroidery details of flowers, bushes, butterflies and flags. I think this will look pretty hanging on the front of the stall.

I got my ami today from the monthly swap that I do with the lovely Steph but she doesn't have mine yet as I'm posting tomorrow so in the next post at the weekend I'll be showing them :-)

Lots to get done this week then, busy stitching an Easter cake band for an order and I have a lot of small things planned too for the next fair in a couple of weeks so I have lists to wade through!

Oh if you haven't already entered my giveaway you have until Sunday, see the previous post!

Beautiful Bunting, do take photographs of your store, it is going to look fab!

Oh wow that bird house is the CUTEST THING EVER!!! If I was Kayla, I'd definitely be keeping that! Love all the other goodies you've made too- the octopus is fab (is that an Esshaych pattern? I keep meaning to make one!), the bookmark and brooch are very pretty and I love your felt items. Lovely bits made by Kerry for you to keep- and it's nice to see my heart, monster, and pin cushion in their new home! Did you take a bonus item too? (from the little plastic bag) Your bunting is absolutely fantastic, that will look amazing on your stall!! So excited about the box, can't wait for it to come back to me!!

Your mushroom bunting rocks! Your stall will definitely be the "best in show" kitted it out with that ;-) love the goodies you picked from the box & the ones you made for it, especially the cute octopus & the little 3d birdhouse - I really MUST get around to making one of those little 3d houses! Happy crafty week :-)
