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 the absence of anything else

 Hello again. Sorry its been a while but we were away last week for a few days and I haven't got around to sorting my photos yet. There are a few I want to share. So in the absence of anything else, I thought I would show you a recent sewing creation. It's a hanging storage 'thingy' for baby bits and pieces.
The idea is you hang it from the end of the cot or changing station and use it to keep all the essentials such as nappies, wipes, cotton wool etc etc. You get the idea. Don't you just love that patterned fabric...owls, butterflies and flowers. Watch out for another item coming in that fabric very soon.
I've been gradually challenging myself on the sewing front, building up to making Little Lady some summer dresses.
At the moment its in my Folksy shop but it may end up being a pressie.
Hope you're all enjoying the snippets of sunshine that are around.
