Even more crafts!

I was going through my stash the other day and found some black and red yarn. This of course meant ladybird! I found a free pattern from Lions Yarn and crocheted away until I’d finished a little ladybird amigurumi in just a few hours.

I even learnt a new snazzy way of starting my amigurumi’s so that I can chain 6 and then pull the leftover yarn into a tight circle. It makes things look far neater.

Then today I was struck by the urge to do yet another craft. Not crochet, knitting, sewing or even cross stitch, but embroidery. So I dug out my old cross stitch and found the leftover threads, used my scrap sewing fabric and started sewing.

I used the rough pattern from Doodle stitching, but did it by eye. I quite like it, but it definitely needs more bursts of colour, a colourful gnome perhaps? Maybe embroidery could make up for my complete lack of artistic talent!
