Do You Have Anyone Left To Buy For?

Have you got anyone left to buy for?  I’m always a bit late with my Christmas shopping so I’ve still got a bit more to do!  I may be able to help with yours though, with a little Miss Gregory’s Gorgeous Gifts Ideas List.

1 – For the Crafter

An amigurumi crochet kit!  My crochet kits are ideal for the crafter in your life.  As long as they know how to hold a hook and a couple of basic stitches they’ll be good to go!  I provide website support with my little video tutorials and am always happy to help with questions, I’m just a contact form or message away!

2 – A Very Special Present for New Parents

One of my crochet baby blankets will knock their socks off!  These blankets are designed with longevity in mind, they can be passed down through the generations to come.  Beautifully crocheted with gorgeous natural fibres or premium acrylic if you prefer.

3 – For the Unicorn Mad

The cutest little baby unicorn you’ll see anywhere!  Like all my amigurumi these mythical lovelies come with their own bed and blanket.
There are only 2 of these left in my shop right now.

3 – For the Cat Lover

The purrfect gift for anyone who adores cats.  So so cute in their little beds! 

4 – For the Baby

A very grabbable amigurumi doll.  These loveable people are designed to fit in little hands, they are of course CE marked (so they meet the toy safety requirements like all my toys), they have no hard parts and can be popped in the washing machine when they get grubby.   

6 – For Lion Tamers 

These little lions are already tame of course but they like to play along!  Perfect for the young and the young at heart who love teeny roars.

7 – For Your Hunny Bunny

These bunnies are the most adorable, they have extra long ears which give them a lot of charm!  One of my personal favourites these are – I have a soft spot for a bunny!

8 – For Dormice Adorers

Do you know someone who loves these little critters?  They each have the sweetest little nest to curl up in and fluffy tails like a dormouse should have.

9 – For Dog Owners

Someone who has a dog really does appreciate these little sweethearts, they’re the cutest little puppies that you can tuck up in bed!  What’s not to love?

10 – For Wolfy People

These little wolf pups are just the thing for people who love the wildness of a wolf but want them cuddly like a puppy really!  Softies!

I hope that’s been some help to you, I’m off now to do some shopping of my own now so here’s wishing you a fabulous Christmas!

My last order date is 17th December for UK customers only.

See you next time!

Amigurumi Kits Part 2

Hello!!

I made a video of what you’ll find inside my brand new amigurumi kits!  This one features my amigurumi dog.  And here it is!  https://youtu.be/W3Jih8KnQ3c

I am planning on doing some more videos – hopefully of me making them.  I quite fancy doing a stop frame animation type of the making process, that could be fun!

I’m pleased to announce that my kits are all in my Etsy shop now!  There are lots of different colours for you to choose from I have a feeling pink is going to be popular!

Christmas Round Up!

December is marching on!  I’ve not finished doing my Christmas shopping yet have you?

As it’s cold and I’m snowed in today my best bet is some on-line gift shopping, I do enjoy being able to shop from the comfort of my sofa!

Just in case you haven’t finished shopping like me, I have some ideas from my shop that might be just the thing for your loved ones – amigurumi that will deliver that cuteness factor, beautifully crocheted blankets that you know will be treasured for generations and unique bags with loads of personality!

The links at the top of my page will take you directly to my Etsy shop, but you can click on the pictures here too if you like.

Happy shopping!  And of course – a big Happy Christmas from me!!

October business busyness!!

It’s been a busy month for me so far, I started October off by moving house.  I didn’t go far, I’m still living on a hill in the middle of Wales but the house I’m in now is an old farmhouse with a lot more room for me, my boys and my business.  You’d think that’d be enough for one month wouldn’t you?

This picture is actually taken from the front door of the house I moved from!  That close!

Then I launched my October blanket, blanket sale.  I really would like to start on some new designs so I have decided to offer a massive 40% off my beautiful heirloom blankets just for the month of October, there are still plenty to choose from in my Etsy shop here.  Get in there for a bargain!

40% off all blankets in my Etsy shop this October

Also in my Etsy shop this month I’ve added some amigurumi lions and some of my bags made from upcycled fabrics.  I use one for my crochet things as a project bag but realised they make great everyday bags too!  Too good a design not to share I thought.

I’m very pleased to say that I’ve finally got my amigurumi unicorn design completed!  I’ve been busy making them for the shops that I stock and hope to have some of them in my shop on-line soon too!

Amigurumi Unicorns

A couple of the shops I made these for are new to me!  So exciting!!  I’m now stocking Charlotte of Hay in Hay-on-wye and have a cabinet dedicated just to my amigurumi in Wyeside Arts Centre in Builth Wells.  So now I’m playing catch up a bit as Talgarth Mill Craft Shop have asked me for some too and Quillies in Rhayader will also be getting some.

Goodness, this has got to be the longest blog post I’ve ever written!  So much news to tell you!!

My crochet lessons have been going well I’m nearly at the end of another beginners course in Builth Wells (always sad when these come to an end and I have to say goodbye to people) and have started running day courses in Rhayader which are brilliant fun!

Lastly!  I’ve made a prototype for a range of soft toys that I’ve been itching to make for months! Some of you may have noticed that there haven’t been many sock monkeys about for a while – this is why.  I do like making the sock monkeys but over the past year my heart hasn’t really been in them and I decided to develop a range of fabric soft toys instead.  This is my prototype dog!  He’s about 21cm high.

That now is all my news for this month (perhaps two blog posts would have been better but where would I have found the time!)

Right back to the crocheting for me now!

New Personalised Cards

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uetJ7VvifxQ]

Hello!

Those of you that follow me on Facebook will know that I’ve just launched a new concept in my Etsy shop – personalised cards to go with my little amigurumi.  It struck me that a gift means so much more when you have a little something with it that has your name on it and a specific reason for giving it.  The gift becomes more meaningful and the card and gift become a treasured keepsake for the recipient.

To give people an idea of what I mean I filled out some of the cards with different special events; 1st birthday, christening gift, new job, bridesmaid’s gift and so on.

I’ve added a few to my Etsy shop now, with a view to adding more in the future.

That’s my news for today!

Bye for now!
