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.

More Sewing...I Need a Lie Down

Here I am back again with some more hand sewn goodies. Above are 2 cushions made from some lush Christmas fabric. I've added a felt flower cut from a spellbinders die and handcut felt leaves, embellished with a single pearlised pin.

Below are a selection of hanging pomanders. Basically they are made from stitching 2 character panels together, incorporating some ribbon and then filling with some cushion stuffing and dried lavender...Mmmm!
Hoping these will go down well at Mum's Christmas Fair, x


  1. Very nice, Alison - love the pomanders, too. Hope you do well for them x

  2. Love your cushions Alison they are lovely and Christmasy
