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.

Hug A Mug

Good Morning Bloggers.

I'm not known for my early mornings but I'm beginning to think my age has something to do with me not needing as much sleep. I hope it doesn't last, lol.

Anyway, a quick post to show you some of the mug cosies I've made for the Christmas Fair. So simple and quick to knit up and ideal for campers, caravanners or even workmen to keep a drink warmer for longer.

That's it for now, off for some brekkie and I'll be back later with a card.



  1. Clever idea Alison. Could do with one of these myself so that when Mr B brings my morning cuppa it stays warm while I read the paper in bed. It's not just the dog who is spoiled in out house.

  2. These are cute. bet they go down a storm (in a teacup - sorry, couldn't help that one). Do like them - brilliant idea!
    Hugs, Neet x
