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.

Naily There...

Ha! Ha! Ha! I hear you chortle.....

Had to show off these fabby nails done for my holiday by the lovely Angela. I have got another finger and a thumb but I was trying to hold my 'ready to go' journal and take a photo at the same time, lol.

I don't know the name of the colour but I thought it was very Moroccan, just right for my forthcoming trip.

I have scheduled a daily post, hopefully, just to keep my blog alive while I'm away. Please feel free to comment although I won't be able to publish them until I return. However, I will look forward to reading them all when I get back.

Meanwhile, I'm probably the only person who is glad that it has been persistently raining for the past 48 hours giving Mark's crops a head start in the water front while we're away. Fingers crossed I get to see my neighbour tomorrow to ask her to keep an eye on them.

Bye for now, x
