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.

The Last of the Nordic Snowflakes - Day 20

Today my stunning model is wearing the last of the Nordic style of snowflake/

Today's design is by JulieWilliams but they did not start out as a dress. I have adapted these Nordic Snowflakes from a tiny Christmas stocking pattern. The dress pattern is taken from Julie Williams 'Seasonal Dresses' pattern.

The dress is knitted in soft 4 ply cotton.



  1. That blue is a stunning backdrop for those pretty snowflakes. The detailed centre of the flakes is incredible. X

    1. Why thank you, this one was a little tricky to knit, changing colours every other stitch, but the challenge is half the fun.

      Well, it is almost here, just two days to go. Ready yet?

      Dionne xx
