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.

More Owls

Afternoon Peeps. Have you too had that downpour? Goodness, I couldn't believe how much rain could fall out of the sky in the space of a few minutes, and after such a lovely weekend too. Still, I'm not complaining, as it will do the veggies good.

As you can see I'm still crafting away, a little slower recently, but that's only because I've been trying to do a little bit in the garden here and there. About 20 minutes at a time is my limit but that's better than nothing, and hubby is slowly beginning to learn a few things so is helping out where he can. Weeds and flowers can be a bit confusing for the humble male...

So above you can see another one of my crochet doorstops, and below, using up scraps of chunky yarn I made 3 more hanging owls. These are so quick and simple to make thanks to the easy tutorial by bunnymummy blog. Thank you Jacqui.
I'll be back soon with another cardigan, x


  1. Hi Alison,your owls are very beautiful!!!!

  2. LOL Alison, weeds and flowers can be confusing to a female too.

    Love your owls, especially the doorstop one.

    Hope you're doing okay. Chris xx

  3. Fab owls - I think Artful Times has owls as its challenge at the moment if you hurry.
    Hugs, Neet xx
