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.

Thank you for dropping by. The current Challenge at Crafty Boots Challenges is 'Blue and White' and today I wanted to share with you an initial letter 'N' covered in blue and white buttons.
I was so pleased with how this one turned out.

How was your weekend? It was cold, wet and very windy where I was, in fact, we even had hailstones a few times. I am hoping that the weather will improve this week.
A new challenge starts at Crafty Boots Challenges today. For the next two weeks the theme, which has been set by the very talented Zoe, is BLUE AND WHITE. Zoe has three great passions in her life, he family, crafting and football. Blue and white just happens to be the colours of her favourite team.
A little bird tells me that it is also Zoe's birthday this week. Happy birthday Zoe.

Welcome to my blog and many thanks for taking the time to visit today.
This weekend we have been enjoying some lovely sunshine although there is still a chill in the air. The swallows have been here a week or two now and are busy building nests but I have not seen the swifts yet this year. Summer is on it's way at last.
I recently bought several baby fairy images from Mo's Digital Pencil and they have been delightful to colour.

As we head for another Bank Holiday weekend in the UK I have a special birthday card to share with you today.
I made this card for a wonderful person and one of my very best friends, my sister. As we grew up I saw this expression on her face more than once and as soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to make a card for her using the image.
