Letters to my Animal creations

Hi there,

I do not know how many of you are into knitting and crochet, but my crafting techniques facebook group focused on Amigarumi last month, and whilst I am still in the process of doing a crochet bluebird (I had to buy eyes before I could continue) I have finished my knitted Giraffe:

Not sure ho much like a giraffe he looks, but he is good enough for me :)
I would like to enter him into the following Anything Goes challenges - Creative Moments - abc-callenge (U for Unlimited) and crafting by designs

This months techniue n focus is ZENTANGLE - check out crafting techniques if this is a crafting technique you have been interested in trying.

I have also been working on my Dino height chart, which is now at just over 20 hours:

Finally I have another book review for you all.
Letters to my Daughter’s Killer by Cath Stainliff
This is a story about a Mother’s feelings towards the killer of her daughter. She writes to him in order to try and get rid of her feelings of hate and desire for vengeance, so that she can start to have a normal life again, if not for herself, then for her grand-daughter’s sake.

The way this story is written is unusual as the whole story is told through letters from the mother to the killer. There is no other narrative at all throughout. I am not sure how realistic it is that the whole story would be retold in this way – especially to somebody who was a part of it – but it does work quite well. It gets a bit confusing sometimes, as the letters are written four years later and so sometimes it is difficult to grasp whether she is telling him of something that is current or in the past. However, all-in-all a very good and captivating read. (You may end up wanting to slap the female defence lawyer though lol).

Thank you for looking,
Hugz Tinz

  3. I'm in love with your knitted giraffe! How delightful to see that toys like this are still made. A couple of my Daughter's favourite cuddlies were hand knitted by a friend.

    Thanks for sharing in our Unlimited challenge.
