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.

The Nativity

I know you are far too busy today to be reading my blog post but, just in case, I should like to take this opportunity to wish you, and your family, a very happy Christmas and, if you are lucky enough to be spending today with family or friends have a wonderful day.  Days like this are very precious in these current times.

Now, sadly, today is the last day for my Advent Countdown Tag Book, I have to thank my dear friend Lisette, aka Mrs Beez, for this fabulous gift.  Today's tag features The Nativity - well what else!

It is also the last day for the Advent Santa Sacks containing the seasonal face masks.  Today we have two different masks.  The first features a cream fabric with a Christmas socking motif.

The other mask is a fabulously luxurious fabric featuring holly and ivy with an extra liberal amount of glitter - watch out when you wear this mask, you will end up covered in glitter.

No matter what you are doing today or who you are with I hope you manage to have a fabulous day.



  1. Merry Christmas to you and Ray. I shall miss the daily mask post. I was thinking how a scrap of each of your beautiful fabrics could be turned into an Advent book - I might start that in February after I've finished my Christmas cards. 🤣

    1. Merry Christmas my old pale, I hope you have been having a fantastic day.

      A fabric Advent Book, please tell me more. I still have quite a lot of my Christmas fabric left - although some of it is only small bits now and some of it is all gone :(

      So pleased we have set the bar for not getting on with our Christmas cards next year. Looking forward to not doing them with you.
