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.

Grandchild in Waiting

Yep, you guessed it...I'm still not back crafting but hopefully having spent a brilliant day on a Liz Welch Friendly Plastic Workshop my Mojo will soon be back in it rightful place.
In the meantime, with my step-daughter's permission, I am sharing with you the first ultrasound scan of our latest Grandchild to be, due in December. He/She already has an adorable big sister who we were able to spend some time with last weekend. Meanwhile my other step-daughter is due her first baby in 6 days time. So exciting.

Enjoy, and fingers crossed I'll be back soon, x
