Welcome


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.

Red Hot!

Not many of these posts left now.  Soon all of my nieces Advent presents will be open and Christmas Eve will be here.

Today one little elf will be receiving this smart knitted outfit in red with contrasting multi-coloured hat and jumper, she is going to look very festive at any party she is invited to.




These knitting patterns are by Helen Cox and are available from Ravelry.

Daisy has been busy putting up a few last minute decorations.





......... or is that her washing?

  1. You can't beat a multi coloured yarn. I love them But it's so hard to choose when you see them in the shops. I especially like how it looks on the hat. X

    1. Haha, funnily enough I was not keen on this colour combo. What I love is the fluffy wool I used in the hats - it looks so much like fur!

    1. Many thanks. It's almost time for the elves to return to the North Pole. All done for another year.
