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.

Afternoon Tea? - Day 10

I think this is the perfect dress to go out to afternoon tea wearing, isn't it fabulous?  Just look at that huge cherry on the top of each cake.

This cup cake pattern is a suppliment to the Julie Williams 'Seasonal Dresses' leaflet and can be found on Ravelry as a free download

I have made the dress with a fuller skirt to accommodate our bunnies fluffy tail.  I just love this airforce blue colour, isn't is wonderful?  As always, I have used 4 ply cotton to make this dress.



  1. Another dress perfect for me! Hoping to go to the Copenhagen equivalent of Bettys tomorrow and this would be Just the outfit to wear, although Um not sure cherry topped fairycakes (my favourite) have reached the Danes just yet! X

    1. Ha ha, I can just see you walking into Betty's wearing a dress covered with images of fairycakes!
