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.

We made it to Leicester

 Hello Bloggers, how are you all bearing up in this cold weather. We still have several inches of the white stuff and so has Leicester, as you can see. The above is a piccie of the Guild Hall where the wedding was held that we were able to get to despite the weather. It was a fabulous medieval listed building that apparently has been used for many things before being licensed for marriages.

Below is a picture of the fireplace. I'm afraid my photography wasn't brilliant but the colours and detail were amazing.
Here are a couple of 'gate-crashers' posing infront of said fireplace.

The following photos are of an old 18th Century chair and desk which was possibly used in ceremonies of oath taking

I thought I'd also share with you a close up of the bride's bouquet. Very simple colour arrangement but stunning.

Finally, a bit of fun. I spotted these red shoes on a young lady at the wedding and couldn't resist taking a photo.
Hope you've enjoyed my snaps and I'll be back soon with some makes.
