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 Grandma Blog.....

As promised here are a couple of photos of Daniel's wee cousin Rose. She is modelling a beautifully crochet hat by the ever talented Jo of
Considering Jo has never met Rose she made a really good estimate of the size, as you can see it fits perfectly. Rose's Mummy was looking much better this visit although she is still suffering dreadfully with morning sickness (not necessarily in the mornings).

As for this photo, Rose wasn't meant to be dissecting a flower but I actually think it's a really good picture. I can see it ending up in a frame.
I feel truly blessed to have 2 such lovely Step-Daughters and consequently 2 adorable grand-children.
Enjoy the piccies, x
