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 8

Can you believe it, Day 8 already, the last week has really flown by.

Thank you for joining me again for my daily Advent surprize.  Today we have Santa's trousers (although I am so tempted to go all American and say Santa's pants!)

This is another of my made up patterns using 4 ply cotton yarn.  Loose fitting, long trousers with a white trim.  There is a slot in the back in case my friend ever wants to dress her rabbit in the Santa outfit - it's for the fluffy tail to poke through.

My friend's Santa Bear must be almost dressed now, so far we have seen his tunic, his boots and now his trousers.

Many thanks for joining me today, please come back tomorrow to see what Day 9 has in store.



  1. Perfection. Would love to see these with the tail poking through! X

    1. I am not sure about perfection, but it was interesting coming up with the pattern for these.
