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.

Craft Barn Calendar Grand Finale

Well here it is. My Grand Finale...

I've used my bind-it-all to attach all the pages to the cardstock stand I made and just added some ribbons for a bit of flourish.
The first 6 months are ready to go and once they have been flipped over the stand all I need to do is turn it round and I have the second 6 months.

Hope you like this idea and here is the link for the Grand Finale :-
