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.

Flowery Frock - Day 30

Just one more Advent post to go for this year.  Today's dress pattern is taken from Julie Williams 'Little Cotton Rabbits - Girl Fox' pattern.

This dress design is called 'A Flowery Frock'.  Made using soft pastel colours in cotton 4 ply.

I will be back tomorrow with my last Advent post for this year.



  1. Another beautiful colour combination and such pretty flowers. This brings back happy memories of our trip to the Netherlands last year when we saw the spring flowers at Keukenhof. X

    1. Thank you. These flowers remind me of those frilled tulips, from your comment I wondered if you can see the same.
