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 27

For most of us Christmas is now over and a lot of people will be returning to work today but, for me and my friend, Christmas does not mark the end of our Advent presents, we cheat and our calender runs up to the end of the year.

Today her package contains another new set of clothes for her Little Cotton Rabbit friends.  If you look closely you will see that I have been experimenting with that yarn which changes colours, this time it is shades of blue.  I have teamed this 4 ply yarn with a slightly darker solid blue 4 ply cotton and the design is my take on the Julie Williams' Little Cotton Rabbit patterns.

And here we have the two outfits modelled by our good friends, the monkey twins - they are actually the same size, but in this photograph they look like big brother with his little sister.

That's it for this post but there will be more later today.



  1. Beautiful sets love the wool and great modeling by the monkey twins !

    1. Thank you. I remember this type of wool being all the rage when I was a young girl and my grandmother made both my sister and I cardigans in it.

  2. These are very striking. The mixed wool gives the feeling of a summer sky.xxx

  3. That blue has some very pretty colours and so fresh - and, of course, good for both a boy or a girl.
