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.

Grandma's Weekend

Sorry I've not blogged much this weekend but this is the reason why...isn't she adorable.
Our little Grand-daughter, Casey, came for a sleepover last night. We took her to the park in the afternoon. This is her wearing Grandma's hat. It fits her better than it fits me and she looks so good in red. She was a little preoccupied with her mittens to look at the camera, lol.
As for the laundry basket.....She just decided when we got back home that it was a good place to sit and was just the right size for her.
Unfortunately I had to take her home today with evidence of her stay, more war wounds. This time from our visit to the park. Poor little lamb bumped her mouth at the top of the slide and put her tooth into her lip. OMG, so much blood. She was so brave and Grandad's hankie came in handy.
So although I've done no crafting we've had a really enjoyable Valentine's weekend and hope you all have too, x
PS Does helping Casey paint with adirondack dabbers count as crafting???
