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.

In Case you were wondering...

Good Evening and another beautiful day in West Yorkshire. I hope you all enjoyed some sunshine too.

Here are some more updates on the altered case I am doing. This is the inside completed and below are the sides and back panels.

I know its not a pony but it fell into the same category. No doubt I will be corrected by a 5 year old.

Finally, here is a snapshot of the lid waiting for further embellishment.
I hope you're enjoying the journey with my case and I'll update you some more hopefully tomorrow.



  1. This is a lovely project for you to be working on, Alison and I'm glad you're managing to fit it in between packing!
    Happy to read that the hydrotherapy went well.

    Hugs, Neet x
