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.

Just A Quickie

Just wanted to show you another couple of hanging pomanders I've made before I log off for the weekend.

We're off in our caravan to Chatsworth for the weekend to take in the Christmas Market. I went last year with a friend but this year hubby and son #2 are joining me. I think we're planning on visiting Bakewell on Friday and then the market on Saturday.

I'll be home Sunday but in the meantime I hope you all have a good weekend, x


  1. Love your pomanders Alison. Have a lovely weekend.
    xxx Hazel.

  2. Sewing again Alison? At this rate you will grow to love it. Very cute little pomanders and the smile on the cat's face made me smile - looks like he has been at the sherry a bit early.
    Enjoy your weekend.

  3. You really have got the sewing bug! I love Christmas Markets but have never been to the one at Chatsworth, sounds brilliant. xx

  4. Have a wonderful time - lucky you - bet it is fab! Love your pomanders.

  5. All this sewing is very worrying, Alison! Remember paper, card, ink?!!
    Seriously though, these are lovely and should be very popular at your Mum's place Christmas fair!
