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.

Today I should like to share my cuddly big bunny with you. He may look a little familiar to you, that is because I included a couple of photo of this bunny in my post entitled 'Mendel's Bunnies', where I tried to show you the different sizes I could get from knitting one of Julie Williams 'Little Cotton Rabbits' patterns in different thicknesses of yarn but I saved blogging about him for today - it seemed appropriate being Easter and all that.

It really was a last minute push, just time snap a photograph before wrapping them. As usual, my photographic skills are all over the place.

They have all gone to new homes now but, before I started my wrapping, I took a couple of group photos to show them all in one place.

As with the above, these are a Julie Williams pattern in her 'Little Cotton Rabbits' range. This one is actually called Boy Bear. No they are not transvestite bears, it is just that I was in a hurry and it takes longer to knit the tights and shoes the girl bears are wearing in their pattern.
