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 show off blog!!!

Just got home from a lovely whistle-stop trip to Scotland to see the grandees. Here is Daniel, now 3 months old. Such a happy little boy and placid too. Not sure how long that will last with the ginger hair coming through, lol
And here's an updated piccie of Rose who will be 2 next month. She is always smiling and is a happy little girl, and very grown-up now as she's no longer in nappies. This will be such a blessing for her mummy who is due another babe in just over 2 months.
It was lovely to see them although sadly not often enough and there's never enough time. Still we have the wonderful photos to keep us going in between visits.

Hope you enjoy the piccies too, x
