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.

Random snowflakes - Day 22

My glamorous model and I am back with another snappy dress designed for the 'Little Cotton Rabbits' range.

The dress is another of Suzymarie's variations of the Julie Williams 'Seasonal Dresses' pattern.  Once again I have made this dress in the fuller option using 4 ply cotton.

This design is called 'First Flurries' and is meant to represent the start of a snow storm.


  1. Wow! I have loved all yor snowflake designs but this flurry is perhaps my favourite. I can almost feel the flakes against my face. That purple is another lovely colour. I have just bought some shower gel that is very similar and called Sparkling Plum which I think is perfect for this dress! X

    1. Ha ha, I love that name for this dress, it is perfect. There is a repeat pattern in the design but it is hard to see.

      I imagine that you have finished work now until after the holiday.
