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.

Little Boy Blue
I am so busy knitting at the moment I forget to share it with you, I am so sorry. Here is a cardigan I made for my baby niece towards the end of last year - I have not had the opportunity to post it before now.
This is a very, very old Robin pattern, Bambino 2496, which I bought in a lot of second hand patterns. To be honest the photograph on the front of the pattern is not very attractive and you could not see the design very clearly but I am so pleased I did not dismiss it because, as you can see, it is a very pretty design. I made the cardigan in Baby Double Knit - I think it is a lot softer than ordinary Double Knit.
Thank you so much for visiting today.
