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.

Happy New Year - Day 31

New Year's Eve, I wonder what you have planned for this evening?  Are you off to a party, spending time with family and friends.  Or do you like to see the New Year in taking a bath or getting an early night.

This Watermelon Dress is another of SuzieMarie's variations of the Julie Williams Seasonal Dresses patterns.

So, you have now seen a months worth of dresses, all based on the Julie Williams Little Cotton Rabbits range.  A big thank you to Daisy the Rabbit for modelling all of the dresses.  These little knitted animals have proved to be hugely popular with all of my family and this will not be the last time you will be seeing them.  I do not apologise for this because, if you could see the pleasure on their faces as they unwrap their presents, you would also start knitting them.  

I wish you and your family the very best for 2018.



  1. This design is so pretty and such fun. Again it would be on my to buy list. I'm not surprised these gifts have gone down so well, they have been such a treat to see x

    1. Thank you again for all of your support throughout this project. I am delighted you have enjoyed all of these designs and I only wished I could wave a magic wand to turn them nto your size.
