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.

Santa is on His Way

Back again, two posts in one day.  Well I did warn you that I have a lot of photos to share!

Do you remember Donovan?  I made him for my oldest and dearest friend.  A few days ago my friend mentioned how much she wished she had a Santa hat for Donovan as she intended to make him part of her Christmas decorations.

I made her this hat for Donovan, I hope it is what my friend had in mind., especially as it is the first present in her Advent Calender.  The hat is made in 4 ply cotton.

Back tomorrow.



  1. I think she will love it! So will Donovan as, because I am lucky enough to own one of your knitted hats, I know just how soft and warm it will be! X

    1. Hi

      I hope it fits Donovan, I keep thinking that I should have made Donovan a whole Santa outfit, but I do not have a pattern for that. Maybe one day.
