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 30

Day 30, just one more day of my 2018 Advent adventure.

I have notice that for the last day or two my internet has been getting slower and slower.  At first I thought it was just uploading the photographs for this blog, but then everything started to get noticeably slow.  Uploading these photographs has taken ages.

I have never been a great lover of the colour green, it was the colour of my school uniform - well, one of them, and my school house colour.  However, this multi-coloured yarn comes in some of the prettiest shade of green I have ever seen.

These clothes are made in soft 4 ply cotton. the patterns are basically the Julie Williams Little Cotton Rabbit patterns - but I have added a few variations of my own.  

The twins are doing a fabulous job modelling these outfits, they never stop smiling.

Back tomorrow with the final post in this adventure, I am also planning to return again later with another random post.



  1. Snap! I'm not a fan of green either. I would rarely pick green as a colour for an outfit. This variant looks lovely and your models are totally selling it. The shoes look super cute too. Xxx

    1. I have only just noticed how dark these photos are, a bit like today!

      Thank you for your lovely comments,

  2. Green is/was my fave colour but Feng Shui said I should avoid it??? beautiful sets and the boy is a little taller again today lol

    1. Ha ha, do you remember Twizzle? I think these two are related.

      Interesting thing about Feng Shui, you would have thought that green would be a popular earth colour. You can tell I have never had it done.
