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.

Amy and Friends Cockayne Syndrome Support


Regular visitors to my blog will remember that last year my dear friend Lisette, AKA Mrs Beez, and I decided that all of our projects for a month would feature a butterfly to raise awareness of the charity Amy and Friends. (Amy and Friends supports children suffering from Cockayne Syndrome, and their families. The butterfly is the symbol they use to represent those whose lives have been cut short by this illness.) 

Today Madelaine Clay, sister of Knox, is going to ride the zip wire in Liverpool to raise money for Amy and Friends Cockayne Syndrome Support. It is not too late to make a small donation to this group, your donation could make a huge difference.

All you have to do is follow this link to justgiving.com to read Madelaine's story and to make an on-line donation. https://www.justgiving.com/Madelaine-Clay.

Thank you.
