Amigurumi Rainbow Drops

And now for something new. :)

These little things were inspired by rainbows.... obviously. :) They're called Rainbow Drops and it's thought these pretty little droplets of colour are formed when ordinary dull raindrops pass through the colours of a rainbow.

Loved making these and fun to use such bright yarn colours as I don't always get to use red and orange for example. :) These will gradually be listed for adoption at my etsy shop.

My first Giveaway - Cupcake anyone?

I've been meaning to do a giveaway for a while now as it seems fun and I also wanted to say a little thanks for all the cool people out there who have either followed me on twitter, liked/became a fan on facebook, supported my blog here or bought something from my etsy or folksy shops.  I am lucky to have such a nice bunch of people around me. :)

Well anyway I promised on my facebook that once it got up to 500 people "liking" me I'd have a giveaway and here it is.  It was really hard deciding what to give away for my first one but in the end I decided on an Amigurumi Lemon Cupcake.  :)  Cupcakes were one of the first things I started creating when I was teaching myself to crochet so I have a soft spot for them. I love cupcakes in general and hoping most of you do too.

To enter all you have to do is to leave a comment here or on my facebook telling me what your favourite item is from my etsy shop and make sure I have a way of contacting you, anonymous entries can't be included as I won't know who you are if you win. :)

The winner will be chosen at random.  The competition closes at midday on Sunday 4th July.  Good luck.

New Amigurumi Owls

It's been a busy week for me this week as I had a trip up to Liverpool to see some friends and also went to a concert, and then yesterday I was out at the Download music festival all day.  Luckily the weather stayed dry and I had a good time. :)

Tired today but I still wanted to blog about my new owls I made recently.  I love my little owls.  I must admit I'm not much of a bird person but I do like owls and thought I'd make a couple of new shades to go with the others I had so there's now a black/grey one and also a different shade of brown.

Available on my etsy shop as usual. :)
