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.

Advent Countdown - Day 20
Do you remember the beanie hat on Day 13? In that post I told you how, when I was making the knickers with the holly leaf motif, they reminded me of antlers. Well, before I made the beanie hat, I made these knickers and worked out the antler design, with the red bead to represent Rudolph's red nose. I know, it is a little stylised, but I think you can see where I am coming from.
The knicker pattern is based on a Mary Jane's Tearoom design and they are made of super soft 4 ply cotton.
Thank you for your continued support, I cannot tell you how much I appreciate you being here with me. I am planning two more posts today, so see you later.
