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.

Just a quickie

Evening Peeps. Just a quick blog this evening as hubby and I are off in our caravan tomorrow for the weekend. Son #2 is away on respite this weekend so we are taking the opportunity of getting some together time....Or rather hubby has a rugby match he wants to go to in Wrexham.....lol

Rather than leave you with a blank space I am showing a couple of birthday cards I've sent recently to fellow bloggers and KCUKers.
Wishing you all a good weekend and here's hoping the sun shines, x
