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.

A Sneaky Peek

Good Evening Peeps.

I'm afraid this is all you're getting this evening. A blurry photo of an old loom spindle that I have been challenged to alter. I will reveal all after Saturday but for the time being this is it. Its a good job I took a poor photo cos I was unable to blue or distort it on Photoshop. I'm not very good with those programmes, lol.

Anyway, I'm sorry to say it looks a bit rude.....I can assure you its not.

Check back over the weekend and all will be revealed.

In the meantime if you fancy clicking on the link in the sidebar I have opened my first online craft shop and would appreciate any comments.

Bye for Now, x


  1. Oh the suspense - Can't wait to see what you create - I will return.

    Thank you so much for the lovely comment on my blog - I love visiting yours and wish I could make cards like you can. I am hopeless

  2. Ha, another one with a slightly dirty mind - I thought mine was a bit phallic as well. Intrigued now and can't wait to see it tomorrow.
    My 'blurry' photo was also more a case of luck than photo manipulation.

  3. Ooh, your mind, Ms Wilkinson!!! Intriguing, though. Best of luck with your Folksy shop - hope it goes well for you x

  4. You are right Alison it looks like a fallick is that the right name
