Hello, my name is Dionne and I have been crafting for a very long time. As a very young child my mother tried to teach me to knit, it was a disaster. However, it must have sparked an interest in making things and, partly to prove that I was not totally useless and partly because I really wanted to make things, I taught myself to crochet. Over the years I have developed a love of cross stitch and all types of paper craft ..... I eventually even taught myself to knit.

I am married to a very understanding man, thank goodness, because I spend all my time either crafting, thinking about crafting or talking about crafting. I am hopeless at housework and dinner is often late!

Thank you for visiting my blog.

Watching the Parade

Good morning Blogland

I think this will be my last post for the current Craft Boots Challenge - use fabric in your project.

This adorable image is from Mo's Digital Pencil, the image is called 'Waiting for the Parade'.

I coloured the image with Promarkers and added some Glossy Accents to the pin wheel to give it some dimension. The papers are from one of Joanna Sheen's CD's called Messy Rabbit and the sentiment is from Craftwork Cards..

I made the Union flags from some material I had left over from when I made my Jubilee bunting a few weeks ago.

If you are looking for my other projects for this challenge, they can be found at:

There is still time to enter your project for the Challenge, but hurry, there is not much time left.

Good luck.
