- 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.

More Sewing...It's definitely a mid-life crisis
Good Evening Bloggers. Well, I'm back again with another sewing project. I definitely need to see the Doctor, this is just so unlike me.....
This time I've upcycled an old denim shirt of my hubby's which I rescued from the charity bag. I planned the cushion cover around the button fastening so that I could utilise it as the opening for the cushion to be inserted. The seams have all been stitched by hand again. I know I should get the machine out but it gives me something to do when I'm watching TV, which isn't very often. I may need to get the machine out if this new venture takes off.
I've listed it on my new Folksy Store if you wanna take a peek. Just click on the link in my sidebar.
