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.

Another Flamenco Scarf and a Usey Uppy Day

Thought I'd quickly share the other 'flamenco' scarf I made, this time for my beautiful younger step-daughter who has a birthday this week.
On the other subject, I have tried this weekend to finish up some projects and use up bits and pieces. Not just yarn and material but also some baking goods. So its been a busy day in the kitchen and the craft room.

Thing is I'm now in trouble cos I've overdone it and worn myself out. Note to self....DO NOT REPEAT!

I'll share some of my UFO's and Usey Uppy pieces over the next few days.

Hope you're all having a good weekend, x
