- cockney blonde
- My name's Alison but for reasons too long to go into I'm known as Cockney Blonde or CB for short. I've been rubber stamping for several years but now spend most of my time either knitting or crocheting. However, with the advent of a New Year I have bitten the bullet and am tackling my usually hated pastime of sewing. I've even bought 'Sewing for Dummies' to guide me on my way. I've been with my hubby Dave for 24 years and between us we have 4 kids and 5 grandkids. We also have 2 cats and a dog, the latter features as my 'photo' image. I used to be able to blog daily but these days I struggle to blog weekly. Hopefully now we are settled into our new home in the country, I can get back to a daily (well almost) update from the room I now have to share with hubby. No more personal crafting space for me!!! Thanks to all the blogs and sites I follow for all your brilliant inspiration, and thank you to everyone who finds the time to comment on my blog.

Well what it is, is a pot holder. However, how it came about was from a piece of knitting that didn't go according to plan. So I backed it, added some wadding and a ribbon and made a pot holder for DH to help him in the kitchen.
What do you think?
Waste not, want not, as my Mother used to say.

Well if that wasn't enough, they spied my mini Easter basket which I had crochet and lo and behold...

Anyway, I wanted to share their beauty with you all and to let everyone know how much I appreciate their loveliness and the kindness of others. Thank you ladies.
More stuff to show you but I'll save it for another day.
Hope you are all well in blogland, x

Meanwhile Little Lady loved it and immediately popped her tissues, purse and lipsalve inside. Quite the little Fashonista. And then spoilt the image........
By swinging the bag around her head by the handle. 6 year olds!!!!
Hope you're having a good weekend, x

This is another of these really cute Topsy Turvy toys from the book written by Susan B Anderson. An amazingly talented American lady. A little tricky if you're not used to knitting on DPNs but extremely satisfying when it all comes together.
I'm not sure if my little bunny is being whimsical or has been on the sherry??? But I think he's rather cute.
This one will be going to my beautiful God-Daughter for Easter.
Have a good day, x
