- cockney blonde
- 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.

Hello Bloggers. I hope you are all enjoying some sunshine at last. It has been very pleasant here in West Yorkshire all over the weekend and continuing into today.
I thought I'd share this unusual card with you which I sent to a very dear friend. The technique was shown to me by Chrissie of Stampin Up. Its one of those cards that presents a whole host of potential problems but once you've mastered the folds you wonder what all the fuss was about.
I really enjoyed this workshop and actually managed to finish the card before the end, obviously it is another pre-leg card, lol.
So to give you a quick resume of the last couple of days. The clingfilm is still doing its job but not for much longer as dressings should be coming off on Wednesday and then I'll be able to soak the leg. The tubigrip will still need to be worn but at least that can be taken off for bathing.
Saturday I was fortunate to have a chauffeur for a few hours so it was off to the nail salon to get the talons back on and then a couple of hours at my #2 Son's Garden Centre for an Open Day.
Yesterday we popped to our local for a drink and were able to sit outside in the sun, and then today its been a trip to the Post Office. As you can see life is just one big adventure at the moment...
So to finish up its #1 Son's birthday today. Happy 30 - 1 J... Hubby and I Skyped him this morning from bed. Just for a laugh we put woolly hats on. Anyway no comment was passed until his girlfriend popped her head in to say hello and immediately said - why is your Mum wearing a hat??? Hilarious - he hadn't noticed.
That's all for now, x
