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.

Sarah, who runs Knitables, designs the patterns, makes the models, runs the website, answers the emails etc, etc, donates a percentage of the money she receives from the sale of her patterns to various charities. On top of that, she has designed a pattern of a little teddy bear in scrubs, which she gives for free to any of her customers who are willing to make it as a 'Thank you' teddy to show their gratitude to our amazing NHS and all the key workers on the frontline.

Happy New Year and here's to a better year than the last.
I made 42 posts during December and wanted to find something special to start 2021. I decided to share with you one of the 'teddies' I have made from the Knitables Collection. This is the second time I have made the cat teddy, this time I wanted to give the teddy a tabby cat look, so I used King Cole's Cherished DK in 'Humbug'.
May 2021 bring you everything you are hoping for.
