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.

Spice of Life

It is time for Day 3 on my Advent Countdown, I am really enjoying this gift (thank you again Mrs Beez), and what is best about it is that I get to use it all over again next year!  Today it is advertising Fast-Acting Magical Spice of Life - caution when using on gingerbread!

Apologies for the quality of the next photograph, the auto-focus must have concentrated on the foreground

I think you have probably worked out that there is a theme to the contents of the drawer string bags ... more masks!  The two today are a pretty pale green with a holly and mistletoe design.

I hope you have a very good day.



  1. Absolutely gorgeous, love that fabric xx

    1. Thank you, they are very prettty fabrics but they make rather boring posts, thank goodness for your countdown tags.

      A backlog of elf pics turned up today so more interesting posts tomorrow!

  2. Another great tag and love the beautiful holly and mistletoe material
