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!

Lots and lots of new things!

Hello again and a big welcome to my new followers :-) Lovely to see you!

Well this has been a very busy week! I had a craft fayre on Sunday and lots to get done in time for it. I'm pleased to say I made it and everything was ready to go. It was at the seaside in a building which is across the road from the beach and Sunday was wonderful, sunny and warm. Made a change from last month when it was snowy and ******* freezing!! The weather seemed to bring people out and they were spending, yippee! I had a great day :-) I have to admit it was busy and I forgot to take a pic of my stall as promised with the new bunting on it, ooops sorry! I will remember next month, promise!

So here's some of the new things I had made for the fayre,

Lots of mushrooms :-) All are embroidered front and back like this.....

Also Easter bunnies with teeny pom-pom tails, I only have one of these left after Sunday and chicks too..

Also two Mother's Day cards ready and delivered to my Mam and MIL already for Sunday :-)

It's my parents golden wedding anniversary on Saturday and I stitched them a sampler a few weeks ago, I gave them the sampler today and they loved it I'm pleased to say, here it is all framed up and the card I made to go with it too. I stitched the centre of the sampler for the card so it matched perfectly, I love how they turned out :-)

Also a card for my nephew's birthday this week,

I have crammed in a lot in a week everything but the sampler was made in a week! I never seem to notice how much I've made until it's actually on here in front of me, lol! There's also a new toadstool cottage which I stitched while at the craft fayre, it's nice to sit and make all day while sitting there :-)

I have some news but as I want to make sure everything is set in stone before I let on you'll just have to wait and see........... Sorry to tease you like that but I'm quite excited about it!
