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!

Birthday pressies!!!!

Hello again!

As promised yesterday I'm back to show the fabulous presents I got for my birthday from my fabulous friends :-)

So I'll start with the lovely Laura, a box arrived late last week and when I opened it lots of pretty little wrapped presents were inside so I was very good and left it alone until Monday! Not easy I can tell you!

Laura had stitched this fabulous Fizzy Moon card for me, isn't it gorgeous?

The silk flowers were scattered among the presents in the box and looked very pretty! There was tw packs of tatty teddy tissues, a Gorjus bookmark a set of Little Red Riding Hood pegs, some lovely b uttons and a fabulous bracelet made by Laura :-)

This fabulous little fairy which I have to say I love so much, she's so pretty!

A little pretty tin filled with buttons, charms and eyes, love those flip flop buttons and the owl!

There were even mushroom house charms, how perfect are they!

The prettiest little kokeshi doll ami and a cute mushroom ami along with a super cute bug too.

This lovely little tulip which is hanging in my craft room now and a hello kitty tin of mints

and this adorable little fabric owl and the loveliest quilted purse with little beads on it made by Laura's very talented Mum :-)

WOW! How lucky am I getting all those lovely things! But that wasn't all as I got a HUGE parcel from the fabulous Steph, I mean huge as well! There are so many pics though I'll post them in a separate post or you'll be fed up of me :-)

So see you again in a day or two with even more fabulous presents!
