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.

Scandinavian Hearts

It's three days into the New Year already.   Our household is a bit sickly at the moment, hubby has a bad cold and I think I may be coming down with it now - but onwards and upwards!

This week I am sharing with the complete outfits from last year's Advent Calender, today is the turn of the Scandinavian styled hearts.  If you have missed all of my posts over the past month and no idea what I am talking about, where have you been?  You can catch up by scrolling back.

To give you an idea of what this outfit looks like on, here it is modelled by my Anaka - sadly hats just do not suit her, they are always too big for her head.

It is entirely possible that I have made so many posts over the past month that I just cannot stop myself ...... sorry!


PS  Look who has arrived wearing their new clothes, it's Donovan and Daisy ....


  1. I love the little hearts on this set and still marvel at the intricate pattern on something so small.Poor Anaka hats do not suit her I have the same problem -hats do not suit me lol.

    1. Actually, I also have the same problem with hats, I always look ridiculous in them.

      Anaka has this set in pink and grey but I think I prefer this red set.
