Sometime last week a lady came to our door selling blackberries. They looked pretty good and juicy, and we knew she needed the money so we bought a bucket. We then had to decide what to do with them, as there were too many to eat in a day and they wouldn't last longer than that. She had suggested we make tea or juice or jam, but I have no idea how to do any of those things. In the end I decided to make a crumble - which I also had no idea how to do! But I found a recipe online and it turned out so good that today, when I saw a girl selling blackberries on the side of the road, I had to buy some more and make it again!
This week I got my complimentary copy of Stuffed Magazine. This time I'm in it as part of the Plush Team. The magazine has done an article on one of our team challenges. If you are a regular reader of my blog you might remember me writing about the Frankenplush Challenge. The funny green fluffy mousey monster thing with pink eyes on the front row is made by me and Cat from RaggyRat.
This is Maisy. She is studying literature and art history at university. To help pay for her studies she works part time in a cupcake cafe. On summer evenings she loves taking a stroll in the park or through town with her friends and on winter evenings you will find her be snuggled up on the sofa with a cup of hot chocolate and a good book. She is available in my Etsy Shop.
You see quite a lot of Amigurumi Cacti popping up on Etsy. Some people make realistic looking ones and others go for the cute kawaii option with a little face. This pattern by mutts is one of the cutest and most original ones I've seen. She sells some fantastic patterns in her Amigurumi Friends Pattern Shop and she also has her Studio Shop where, if you're not much of a crocheter, you can buy the finished articles.
New in my Etsy Shop, this cat holds the key that you are looking for. The key to your heart or maybe someone else's. The key to your future. The key to understanding things that can't be understood... or the key to the cupboard that you know is full of chocolate and other lovely things.
This is the first amigurumi doll I've finished in ages! I've been so busy that I haven't had time to make any. Maybe it's because I'm a bit out of practice, or because it took me so long to finish her, but somehow she didn't turn out quite like I wanted. I haven't decided yet if I will put her in my shop, and if I do I need to think of a name and a story for her and some kind of accessory.... What do you think?
I have been making and designing amigurumi since March 2009. This is the place where I share my creations and various bits of my life! If you are interested in buying any of my amigurumi or if you want to ask for a custom request feel free to check out my etsy shop below.
