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.

Look at this fabby giveaway being offered by Linda over at

This is a new set of stamps which have been designed by the talented lady herself.
Click on the link in the sidebar to find out more and hop by her blog to be in for a chance of winning.

Not much to report here other than the clingfilm was redundant this morning thanks to a new waterproof dressing. Oh it was just divine to be able to put the leg into the water.....mmmm.

I'll be home alone again later while  hubby goes to an Olympic football match at Old Trafford. Fortunately our #2 Son is able to use a microwave under instruction and supervision so it will be a 'ping' tea tonight.

That's all for today. See you tomorrow, x
