My Sunday Photo – 8th April 2018

a bear made of crochet in brown wool with a  white dress, green cardigan and red boots, sitting on the sofa

Say hello to Nancy Bear. She’s my prototype and I made an unbelievable amount of mistakes making her. But she’s been well loved by Boo who has asked me for more.

So now I’m just finishing of Lucy Mouse, who has turned out a little better. I am learning. I can’t show you photo of her because I’ve not made her any clothes yet, I will preserve her modesty.

Next up, Star wants me to make a fox and a cat. I think I’m going to be very busy for the next few months. I didn’t think the Little Man would be interested but he’s also asked me to make him a cat.

I love to crochet, it helps to relax me and I love creating things. Do you have any hobbies?

    Hi Anne, I love Nancy! She looks like the kind of soft toy a youngster could really drag around and snuggle up with too. I love the fact you’ve crocheted her some clothes too. I bet Lucy will be good company for her. I’ve not picked up my crochet since we’ve come back from the mainland, I’ve been too busy sorting photos from our trip in my spare time. I have a pair of gloves on the go at the moment, which I won’t be needing until next winter now.

    How lovely! There’s something adorable about crochet and knitted toys. It does sound like you will be busy for a while. I don’t have any crafty hobbies, my hobbies are blogging, running and reading.

    You will be busy for the foreseeable future! Way beyond my levels of patience! #mysundayphoto

    Nancy Bear is amazing, you’re so clever. I’d love to be able to crochet (or knit or sew like my mum) but I haven’t got the patience for it. My poor mum has tried to teach me but it doesn’t end well. #MySundayPhoto

    I’ve always wanted to be able to do crochet but never got round to starting. I even have a set of crochet hooks in the drawer! Nancy Bear looks wonderful and so well made. I can see why your orders are stacking up!

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

Some people only write reviews when things go wrong with products, which is good because it lets people know that there could be potential problems. I’ve also seen negative feedback with say things like, I had to return this item because the colour did not suit me…is this useful?

I write reviews on most items I buy because I like to give genuine feedback. If I have a genuine problem with a product I will write my review in the appropriate place.

I write reviews on my blog too, but they are mostly positive. Why? Because I only write reviews for the things I’ve loved. If I don’t love them I let the person who sent me them know with details why and then let them decided if they would rather me write a negative review or not write one at all. It’s always the latter.

This is my blog, my place and I’ll let you know about the things I love. If you want to find out what other people have hated about the product then you will need to look elsewhere.

My reviews may all be positive, but they are still genuine.
