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.

Holly Wine

Day eleven and it is tie for the Holly Wine - cheers.

For those following my daily posts ... today's face mask is a rich green fabric with gold and silver star decorations.

Coco and Louise elves have been shopping today and bought the children some gingerbrad men to make.

Daisy has some foam shapes to make into little Gingerbread Men whilst Louis has the real deal to decorate.

What's Daisy been up to today?

Seem's the Christmas Decorations are not up to her standard, I suspect this is not going to be the last we hear about this.

Goodness, someone has pinned Daisy to the Advent Calender Board!

Have a good day.



  1. Today's mask looks like the perfect thing for a party/New Year - very sophisticated! Do you think Daisy overstepped the mark and therefore had to pinned down? 😂 Probably best Phil doesnt see this and get ideas!!! Xx

    1. Or perhaps Daisy owes Iggle Piggle money........

      No good comes from gambling.

      Dionne xx
