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.

My First Blog Candy Giveaway

This is so exciting, my first Blog Candy giveaway. Please feel free to copy the piccie to your sidebar and don't forget to tell your friends about the giveaway. I'm offering these goodies to celebrate my first Guest Designer spot with the Craft Your Days Away team. You can just spy my project in the midst of the goodies which will be included in the bulging envelope. More about my project in my next posting.

Anyhow, I'll select the winner of the Candy from comments made to this posting. You don't have to become a follower but if you do that would be lovely. I'll leave the Candy up for a week and will draw a name from a hat on the evening of Sunday 25th September.

Good Luck, x
