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.

Fair Isle Dress - Day 29

We are getting towards the end of my collection of Advent dresses, I made these for my friends Advent Calender this year.

This dress is one of the SuzieMarie variations on the Julie Williams Seasonal Dresses, the design is called Fair Isle Dress.

It is made of soft 4 ply cotton, with little cap sleeves and a tiny button fastening at the back.



  1. Another gorgeous colour combination and such a pretty pattern. I shall be very sorry to see the end of these designs x

    1. You're too kind. but this will not be the end I am afraid. I made lots of different Little Cotton Rabbits as Christmas presents but, for obvious reasons, could not post them before Christmas. I tried to keep count as I wrapped them, I think it was 16 normal sized, one tiny one, 1 large one and 2 extra large ones. So far you have seen three of them, the rest are yet to come. Happy New Year!
