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 busy week in Blonde-Land

Yep, as usual the week has become shorter and I've struggled to cram everything in, although I have managed to now take over most of the house with my 'stuff'!!!
Began the week with news that we are to be Grandparents again, or was that last week's news??? Anyway, either way it is brill and exciting and costly!
Spent a lovely albeit freezing day at AFTH decorating a printer's tray. A fab project but suprisingly me and my partner in crime, aka Diane, didn't read the small print and didn't take photos with us, duh!!! Inspiration meltdown. Had to raid the shop (what a chore, lol) to come up with images and ideas for our now to become ATC holders. Can't cope with that as we're used to Dyan telling us what to do and therefore we left our brain cells at home having a much deserved rest. Anyway, despite that I think we managed a pretty fair effort although there is nothing to upload at the moment as, surprise, surprise, mine isn't finished.
Just to snitch on Diane she was very naughty and used a man's piccy on one of her cards and was coming up with naughty suggestions on whether to use the tapemeasure ribbon!!! I suggested her's was too big and that mine with 1 - 2" on was a fairer assessment, so a swap was done. Don't know who the man was supposed to represent........check her blog to find out http://inkymeanderings.blogspot.com
