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.

Such a Sweetie

Good Morning, a sunny day at last. The dullness has gone for now.

I'm sharing this cute little card which I have made (pre-leg) for the little girl next door. She has a birthday on Sunday. This is one of the digi images from the Funky Kits people. They are a dream to colour with your copics.

Hubby has just popped out to take our beautiful labrador to the vets. She has been struggling of late with her arthritis but a cocktail of anti-inflammatories and analgesia has been keeping her very comfortable. However, she still insists on climbing the stairs and unfortunately yesterday she managed to fall down a couple. So having monitored her overnight we noticed she was still limping this morning and a lump has appeared on her hind leg. So off to see the wonderful Sal who will, I'm sure, sort her out.

As I sit here writing my blog I can see a very sad looking labrador/greyhound cross who can't understand where big 'sis' has gone. Wait! Big 'sis' has been forgotten in preference of a bit of sun-bathing....so fickle...

Hope you all have a good day and I'll see you soon, x
