So it's ami swap time again! For those of you who don't know about this, at the end of every month I swap an amigurumi with my lovely friend Steph, if you pop over to her lovely blog she has a giveaway on with lovely dragony prizes! So there was a theme this month, usually they're just a random surprise, so it was Chinese New Year and the start of the year of the dragon.
Steph sent me these two gorgeous dragons!
How cute is that! The teeny one is a finger puppet and so cute, my kittens are loving playing with that when I put it on my finger :-) The purple one is called Jelly Bean and is knitted from the most fabulous sparkly wool, I love them! Jelly Bean is such a cute lovely thing, look at her wings with sequins....
How cute is that! There was a lovely ball of sock yarn too but I forgot to take a pic of that, lol! Thanks Steph, love my dragons, I think Jelly Bean is one of your best yet :-)
So I sent Steph this Chinese dragon,
He turned out a lot bigger than I'd been expecting! Was fun to make though and Steph likes him :-)
So another fabulous swap as ever, looking forward to next months surprise pressie already! We've been doing this swap for a long time now and it's still as much fun as when we started, I mean it's a present a month for no reason who wouldn't like that, lol!
Also my lovely giveaway prize from Kerry's lovely blog arrived, lots of goodies in the post this week :-) This gorgeous biscornu, I love the thread colours and it's one of my favourite designs too!
and all these lovely goodies, it was impossible to get a pic without Daisy gatecrashing in somehow, she was determined, lol! So pretty coloured bits of aida, two lovely threads, love those colours! Lots of pretty beads and fab buttons, I love beads and buttons so very happy there. Thanks Kerry for a lovely prize :-)
So onto the makes of the week, there are things I can't show as there's another swap coming up in a week or so but this week I had to make two new mushrooms and a toadstool as they are selling pretty well over on etsy! Oh yes while I remember, I was totally wrong, you can all tell me that and rub it in if you like. A while ago I asked for opinions on the Valentine Cottage with the hearts on the roof as I didn't think it was good enough to sell, you were all lovely and told me it was a good'un and you were right, I've sold four so far. So there, what do I know!
The latest this week are Hyacinth Cottage with French knot hyacinth's around the door...
A new Valentine Cottage to replace a sold one...
and the last I finished off last night. I had an idea for a birthday/celebration type cottage and came up with this, Party Cottage has bunting around the roof and balloons tied either side of the door. What do you think?
Guess it's been a busy week as I also had a custom order for some embroidered hearts with an A on them, so I made these....
I also made two kitty key rings, I'll be making more of these in different colours....
So that's my latest things, hope you like them :-)
See you all soon and I have a giveaway planned as my first blogiversary is coming up on the 19th of February so don't forget to watch for that!
Hope you all have a great week,
