I’m Diane, mostly known as Diane of Diane’s Puppets but to others known as Diane the lady who paints, draws and makes things. I hope to be able to use this blog to showcase this other side of me.
Having recently learned to crochet, I’ve got the bug bad. I love that crochet lends itself to making small cute things, things of no real value apart from bringing a smile to your face and making a hat, jumper or bag just that little bit more interesting and original.
I knit and sew, but not as compulsively as crochet, and I draw and make greetings cards. I’m a formally trained artist but I do enjoy the simple discipline of the more pared down image.
I’m currently in the grip of making crochet portraits of cats , dogs and Burlesque performers. It’s a good life!
