About Me

My photo
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.

Oops! I Done it Again.....

Yep, you guessed it, more sewing on another t-shirt. This time it was to cover up a suspicious red stain. Must have been blackcurrant cordial, lol. Anyway, I thought I'd share my latest t-shirt with you as I haven't any cards to share at the moment.

Here's a close-up of the main section.

And here's a close-up of the bottom part with the fabbie vintage button from my Mum's old button tin. 

Sorry I've been MIA but it was the Harrogate Show at the weekend and by the time I'd wandered around several times and met up and chatted with loads of internet and group friends I was cream crackered when I got home. Also I've been working on my GD project for the Craft Your Days Away Challenge Team. More of that at the weekend as I can't spill the beans until then.

If you check back at the weekend you may also see a link to some blog candy which will include the above mentioned GD project.

Until then stay safe in these dreadful winds, x
