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.

Baby Born gets a new outfit

 Yay! I've made it back for a third week. Unfortunately there isn't much to show you apart from this outfit I made for Little Lady's Baby Born doll.
It's great knitting doll clothes as they knit up so quick. Just a bit fiddly to put together.

 I have finished another project but can't share that with you yet as its a pressie and knowing my luck the recipient will be nosing through my blog.
 I also have 5 (yep FIVE) projects in various stages in the knitting/crochet bag plus a project in the making on the sewing table and another one at the planning stage.
For now I will share with you the finished product and fingers crossed I'll have something else to show you very soon.

Finally, Happy 91st Birthday to my Mum.

Thanks for looking, x


  1. Happy Birthday Alison's Mum, loving the new clothes for the baby doll :)

  2. Love that outfit - cool. Lovely to hear that your Mum's 91 - wow! Hope she's well, Alison and you, too. Glad you're still being creative :-D
