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.

Not Exactly the Tour de France


Another lovely day here.  We are so lucky to have missed all of the dreadful hailstorms and flooding of yesterday, we just had a couple of quick showers.

Over at Crafty Boots Challenges we are celebrating the summer holidays.  When I was a child I loved to go out on my bike during the summer holidays, racing my friends around the village and probably driving all of our neighbours mad.

My bicycle was second hand and actually looked a lot like this vintage bicycle from McMahon Five.  The backing paper is from Kanban Crafts and the card from Stampin' Up.

I hope you are having a great day.

  1. Ooh this is clever. Love the backing paper with it. I always wanted a chopper bike but had to make do with second hand too :)
