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.

He Has Been at it Again!

My husband has been at it again!

You may remember that back in December I posted a rock he had found on top of a pillar box close the where we live?  The other day I asked if, whilst he was out, he could post a pile of birthday cards which needed to catch the next pick-up.  He returned with this gorgeous rock, which he found in the same place as the other one he had found.  He was delighted with his find and rushed home to show me.

I know that I did not paint this one but is is so lovely I wanted to share it with you.  I did have a go once but I chickened out of painting and used transfers instead.

On the reverse of the stone were instructions to post a photograph of our find on the Facebook page for 'Love on the rocks UK (Hiding Rocks ~ Making Smiles)'.

There was also a note that it had been painted by Maggie on Valentine's Day - thank you Maggie.
