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.

Good morning

One of my all time favourite images is 'Witchkeys' by Saturated Canary, last year I made several cards with it, so this time I wanted to try something different.

I thought I would try paper piecing.  The parts of the image which I did not piece, I coloured with Promarkers.  I mounted the finished image on some silver mirri.

The gorgeous purple backing paper is a freebie from Bearly Mine.  I also added a pumpkin charm and some ribbon from my stash.

Thanks for dropping by.
