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.

By the Seaside

Evening Peeps. Sorry no cards at the moment. We've just got back from a week away in our caravan. What fabulous weather we had. We spent a few days on the North Berwick coastline and this top piccie is our beautiful labrador Etta doing what she loves best.

I didn't want you to think I'd forgotten you all but we came home on Sunday, I had a birthday on Monday and then its back to the old work routine :(((

We've also got a few family problems at the moment but all being well I'll be back to my crafting asap.

This next piccie is of both our 'girls' playing in the sea. Joss doesn't go in as far as Etta but she still likes to have a little play.

The coastline along that part is so beautiful with clean beaches and clear waters. Unusual for the UK I know but we enjoyed every minute of it.
Hope you all had a good long break with the extra bank holiday and also enjoyed good weather.

Back soon, x


  1. Looks lovely and your girls seem to be having a whale of a time (no pun). Glad you chose a good weather week for your trip - you deserved the break.
