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.

Schhh, Can you Hear Santa's Sleigh Coming? - Day 24

I have a rather special outfit to share with you today, I like to think of this as Santa's Little Helper Outfit.

In fact, Suzymarie has called this design 'Santa's Helper Dress', the instructions are available on Ravelry. It includes instructions for converting Julie Williams cloak into a Christmas cloak to match the dress.

I love all the attention to detail, like the 'fur' trim and the belt and buckle.  It makes such a wonderful outfit for Christmas Eve.

I should like to take this opportunity to wish each and everyone of you a very happy Christmas.



  1. Love it and possibly my favourite.The cloak is a lovely addition. I bought my friends baby a similar outfit but haven't been able to find one in my size. X

    1. You are adorable Mrs Beez. I so wish I had a shrink raygun, so I could shrink you and spend the day dressing you up.

      Have a wonderful Christmas.

      Dionne xx
