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 9
Woohoo, we have Santa's underwear, the pattern calls them bloomers but the rest of us would either call them pants or knickers.
The pattern comes from Mary Jane's Tearoom Anika Rabbit. They are made of 4 ply cotton yarn and have a picot edge. I took the liberty of adding my own holly leaf design, including clusters of tiny red seed beads. Once again I have left a slot in the back for any fluffy tail to poke through.
I really cannot thank you enough for taking this journey with me, please join me again tomorrow.
