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!

And the winner is.......

Hello everyone and welcome to my new followers too :-) Lovely to meet you!

Today is the end of my latest giveaway  , thanks to everyone for entering. So a reminder of the prize.....

which is two embroidered mushroom decorations, a cute owl amigurumi and a felt heart keyring.  All the names have been put in a bowl and the winner as picked by the boyfriend is.................


Congratulations! Send me your details and I'll get them sent off to you, my email is in my profile. 

It's been ami swap week too! Where every month I swap an amigurumi with the lovely Steph, check out her blog to see lots of loveliness :-)  So this months swap was fabulous as ever, Steph sent me this fabulous Mochiland elf and a very cute mini bunny and little rainbow brooch, how sweet! 

and look at the gorgeous card she made me too!!!

How fabulous is that! So I made Steph this granny owl,

I love how this turned out and I'm pleased to say Steph loved it too. I also sent a card and bag of goodies but didn't take a pic of them! Steph did though and you can see them on her blog.  Another fabulous swap thanks Steph! It's always great getting a present each month :-)

So I have a busy week ahead of me, I have a craft fayre next Sunday and a list a mile long of things I want to make for it as well as two Mother's Day cards to get done! I've been making more mushroom decorations like the two in the giveaway. I sold one on Facebook this week, a custom request of a pink door, bunting and a dragonfly on it. Here it is....

I'm working my way through a little pile of them today, they are such fun to embroider as I make them up as I go :-)

Well I better get back to the list, have a great week everyone!

Congratulations KnittingGirl...well done!
That pink owl is off the cuteness scale! He, or more likely she because of the pink, is adorable!
Good luck with the craft fayre.

Dear Lori,

I simply had to pop in and catch a glimpse of those adorable toadstools. It must be fun to embroider them each uniquely.

It's great that you are selling your wonderful wares.

Have a beautiful week.
