And they called him Frank.

My husband’s grandson, Henry, has reached the grand old age of one. We simply can not believe where the time has gone.

With Morris the monkey the 2nd successfully introduced to prolong the life of Morris the first I was keen to add to his collection.

I knew that Kerry Lord, the designer of the amigurumi, had also turned her talents to birds.


I was immediately drawn to the flamingo. So over a period of several evenings, Frank the Flamingo took flight.

The details are incredible, right down to his knobbly knees.

Needless to say, his long dangly legs and wobbly neck meant he was happily grasped by his recipient.

I’m sure his mum won’t mind me sharing a photo of the truly delicious cake she made!cake

And her mum’s amazing jelly.

I feel a pelican calling me.

Love, Lucie xx

PS. Frank’s working name was Filly the Flamingo, after my mum;)

About lovelucie1

I cannot sit without something in my hands to sew, crochet, sketch etc. This becoming something of an addiction. In fact, I start to get twitchy if I am stationary somewhere, waiting for an appointment, waiting for my daughter, away with work, without some project to keep my hands busy. Minutes wasted make me anxious. This blog logs my progress to raise funds through my creations to feed my textile habbit.

  1. They’re addictive aren’t they? Have you discovered the monster book yet?

  2. Yes, I was tempted by the birds even though I’ve sworn I’m not going to do any amigurumi. However, once I saw the monster book with the flip over pages so you can make all different combinations, it was that one I put on my birthday wish list should anyone ever ask me what’s on it.
    I like your flamingo’s saucy crossed legs pose and the cake and jelly are far too good for children.

    • Thankfully most of the children at the party were too young to enjoy much of the cake. More for the adults!
      I found the flamingo a rather jaunty creature. Just wondering if I can fit another one in before Easter.

  3. no no no, you can’t call a flamingo Frank, she is a she and she is Phoebe. She is also gorgeous. Am loving that jelly, so clever.

  4. I’m afraid if I made just one I’d want to make a whole menagerie – Frank is irresistible and I love his name😀
