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!

I'm still alive!!!!

Hello everyone!

I'm just popping in quickly to say I'm still alive, I know it's been ages since my last post and since I got to visit you all and I'm really sorry. I got a lot of custom orders for Christmas and have been doing lots of fairs too, this is the first Saturday I've not done one for weeks as I wanted a break. I'm getting there and hope to be back here properly by Christmas :-)

I have called in to see a couple of blogs in the last week and entered a advent giveaway on the fabulous Laura's blog and I won yay! This morning the postman brought me this.....

A parcel with lots of little parcels, one for each day until Christmas! The first one was swiftly opened and this gorgeous little crochet snowman was inside :-)

He's now on my Christmas tree along with lots of other handmade decs from my lovely friends, Kerry and of course lots from the wonderful Steph as well as some of my own. I'm getting quite a collection now :-)

I have some exciting news too. Two of my felt cupcakes went to Hong Kong this week, they were bought to put on a headband to be worn by a local celebrity in a TV commercial!! I've asked if it's possible to get a picture of them in the advert and hope to get a reply, fame via cupcake! :-)

I was also in this months Craftseller mag again :-)

I'll try to get back here in a few days as the ami swap pics need showing too! So much to catch up with!

Have a fab weekend and I'll be back as Arnie said.....
