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.

Elf Advent - Day 2

I think this is going to be a very busy month of blogging, I hope you do not get fed-up with me popping up on your screen.

Today one of my nieces received a little ballerina outfit as her surprise gift.  The outfit consists of wrap around cardigan, a tutu and leg warmers.  My girl elf knitting patterns are by Helen Cox available from Ravelry.

I decided that I needed my own super model elf to show off the outfits to their best.  I suppose I should give her a name, any suggestions?

My niece helped Daisy the Elf into her new ballerina outfit and then Daisy climbed into their Christmas tree to hide.  I wonder how long it took the girls to find her!

Daisy also left a little message for the girls, seems the little magic door may still have a use.

And it seems that two little girls have been very busy this morning ...........



  1. How cute are those leg warmers???!!! The whole ballerina outfit is so authentic.Cant wait for tomorrow's post x

    1. I have been working on this project for most of the year and now it is all coming together I am having so much fun ... I hope the girls are enjoying it as much as me.

      I'll try to keep the updates coming, pop back anytime for a catch-up.

    1. Thank you. I find it so funny that the elf gets all dressed up ... with their old clothes underneath!

      I wonder what the girls asked for in their letters.
