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.

Do you remember the Little Cotton Rabbit Fox I posted two or three weeks ago?  Well, the Little Cotton Rabbit series of patterns do not include a dog pattern, which seems rather odd to me because there is a patter for both a Boy Cat and a Girl Cat.

So, I decided to make the Boy Fox in a different colour to see if it would look like a dog.

I thought a little black and white dog would look good until I realised that a black nose on a black background would not show up.  I decided to stitched his nose in pink and was feeling quite pleased with myself until my husband pointed out that no dog has a pink nose.  Opps!

His ears are made in three colours - black with a white tip and a pink lining.  I tried to make his tail slimmer than the fox tail but I think it should have been even slimmer.

I made him a jumper with a pretty blue sail boat on the front and matching blue shorts.

Here he is with his foxy friend.  Both the fox and the my black and whits dog are made in Aran weight yarn and their clothes were made from double knit.

I hope you have a great weekend.
