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.

Just a Quickie and an ATC

Good Evening everyone and I hope you are all enjoying the start of a long weekend, that's if you don't have to work.

It's just a quick post this evening as I was working this morning and then I've been preparing our spare room for our little Grand-daughter sleeping over this weekend. I'm not sure I'll be blogging again before Monday as the PC is in the spare room but before I go I wanted to share with you an ATC I've made for a workshop I'm on tomorrow, hosted by the lovely Neet. Check out her blog if you haven't already. She makes some amazing stuff http://hickydorums.blogspot.com/
The theme was Spring (I hope) and it was to create a pocketed ATC with a Tag. I hope I've interpreted it correctly as I'm renowned for going 'off piste' at times, lol, x
Right, off to pack my bag for tomorrow. Nighty night everyone, x
