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.

Let Sleeping Dogs Lie...

What are you supposed to do when confronted with this really cute image???We popped down to the Cotswolds yesterday from West Yorkshire to visit my 95 yr old Auntie. She is amazing and still lives by herself and manages to cook a proper dinner everyday, and still keeps an open fire which she cleans and resets every morning. Anyway, Joss knows that she isn't allowed in front of the fire but took the opportunity of a quick nap while Auntie was out of the room. How cute is that.......

BTW, she (Joss not Auntie) had her stitches out on Tuesday and is healing well. I guess she thought she deserved some TLC.....

Hopefully back to regular blogging now. We didn't go away this weekend after all, just the day trip, but have finished laying a vinyl floor today so have spent this evening trying to catch up with messages.

'til next time, x
