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.

Cherry Ripe - Day 13

I love all of the winter scenes created by the amazingly talented Julie Williams and SuzyMarie but I am beginning to think that their food designs are my favourites, each design is so clever.

 This dress is another of Suzymarie's variations of the Julie Williams 'Seasonal Dresses'.  Suzymarie has called this design 'Cherry Pie'.  

Every time I knit this pattern I am struck by what a great design for a cherry pie this is, with all the cherries and the lattice pie crust.



  1. Anything with cherries on and I will wear it! Trying to get a sense of just how small those cherries must be in real life. Once again, amazing detail. I love the pie crust. A yummy creation! X

    1. Thank you. Well, including her ears, my model is about eleven inches tall. I no longer have the dress so I cannot measure the cherries, I would say they are about the size of a shirt button, maybe a smidge larger.
