Finish! Erna the Strawberry from Lalylala

I have been crocheting like a mad woman recently but I haven’t been working on anything that I can share (it’s a bit of a secret project with the lovely Lisa from The Wee House of Crochet, and I’m so excited about it!). So I decided to take the Erna doll I finished a few weeks ago over to Wigg Island for some photos. I originally wanted to take pictures of her in the strawberry patch at my other halfs allotment, I have a whole scenario planned that I still might do, I just need to wait for the fruits to grow!

I really should of taken some close up photos of her to show off the beads sewn on as strawberry pips but I was having too much fun posing her (and entertaining the dog walkers who obviously thought I was crazy!)

Stephen the Sheep wandering around Wigg Island

The sky was so clear and bright this morning that I thought it would be a perfect day to take out first walk of the year 🙂 One of our favourite places to walk (and by our I mean my other half AKA Lurch and I) is Wigg Island in Runcorn. It has bird hides that look over the Mersey, you can usually see many ducks, moorhens and swans on the canal and it even has a Troll Trail with awesome wooden carvings. All in all it’s a great walk and I decided to kill two birds with one stone and take my recently finished Heidi Bears Shoop the Sheep for some nice daylight photos. (I say recently, he’s been finished for a couple of months now. I just haven’t taken any decent photos of him. I’ve called him Stephen as he doesn’t look like a ‘Shoop’)
