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.

Blankets for Doll's Pram

Good morning

I hope you are recovered from your New Year celebrations.  Another year, I really do not know where the time goes (now I am starting to sound like my grandmother!)

I had a telephone call the other day from a good friend, her granddaughter received a doll's pram for Christmas but it did not have any blankets, my friend asked for my help.

So, I got out my yarn and crochet hooks ..........

I do not crochet very often and I really enjoyed making these two small blankets.

I hope you all have a very happy and prosperous New Year.



  1. Hi Dionne
    OMG and WOW,WOW,WOW, these blankets are spectacular! Your crocheting is fantastic! Love the pattern and I recognized the lace because I have it in my stash too.

  2. You can knit and crochet too????? I never mastered knitting and was never taught crochet. I'd love to be able to do both. I've often wondered if I could teach myself? They started a knitting club in my office but because i'n barely there I haven't been able to give it a go. Perhaps a new New Year's resolution.

  3. Ah bless, they're lovely.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.
