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.

Rude Comments

Firstly this is a warning to any of my followers not to take any notice of a certain individual who is posting unpleasant comments on our blogs. I was told that my work lacked uniqueness and the text should have been printed lower....Whatever!

I clicked on the attached link and it took me to a Pakistani shop. There didn't appear to be any virus attached I just think its some very unpleasant individual who gets a kick out of trying to p--- people off. Well he/she failed. I also think its odd that other affected bloggers seem to be linked to each other in some way so I suspect they've googled onto one of our blogs and then looked at our sidebars to see who we follow. If said individual is reading this then let it be known that crafters are made of stern stuff and won't be affected by petty minded little people. Go get a life and leave us bloggers in our creative worlds.

To everyone else ie pleasant people...have a lovely weekend, x


  1. I had one too, Alison but I just deleted it. The links made me wary and I'd never heard of the person.

  2. I didn't and wouldn't even open a link to such a person! It was all so unfounded and I must admit that I was fearful it would lead to some sort of virus. One thing is that if they've returned to see our reactions they must by now know how shallow and stupid they are and I hope they realise it's not nice being nasty! It must be awful to be like that.

  3. I've had one of these comments recently (and quite a while ago). I just delete them. xx

  4. I also had one, telling me my photo wasn't straight!!! Annoyed me at first but seeing all the talented people who also got a rude comment I'm proud to be in the same company :-)

  5. Hey, I just had one recently too !!!! I will delete from mine. thx for the heads up
