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.

Advent Countdown - Day 19

This is the first of two posts today and it is Day 19 on my 2018 Advent calender journey.

Today we have two pairs of Mary Jane shoes, one in red and the other white.  Both have straps and tiny button fastenings.

The shoes are made in soft Anchor 4 ply cotton.  These shoes complete the heart motif outfit, if you missed any of my posts, here are the links to the jumper, skirt, hat and knickers.

If I am honest, there is not a lot you can say about 2 pairs of knitted shoes, so that is it for now.  Please join me again this afternoon for my second post of the day.
