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.

A few moths ago a close friend told me that he had taken I photo of his street when it had snowed the previous year and he was thinking that it might make a good Christmas card to send to their neighbours. Of course, I jumped to offer my services .......

Today my glamorous assistant is joined in her Advent fun by two new friends - Girl Cat and Girl Mouse. Both of these Julie Williams patterns are available from Ravelry.
I hope you enjoy the rest of the holidays.
Our little elves have now returned to the North Pole to help Santa deliver all of the presents around the world last night. However, before they left, they had one last task to perform.
They were very busy collecting reindeer poor and shovelling into packets marked 'Chocolate Raisins'!

I love this pretty dress, it is from the Girl Monkey pattern, which is available from Ravelry (the original pattern has a pretty bow, I tried to reproduce it but mine just looked ridiculous, so I scraped it).
