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.

Something a little different

Hello Bloggers. Can't believe yet another beautiful day in West Yorkshire and these flowers look fabulously  vibrant in the sunshine.

I had a surprise visitor yesterday evening who brought these for me. Aren't they just stunning. You may remember I was feeling a little down on Wednesday and hubby had been trying to arrange a visit from our friend, so when he arrived yesterday evening I gave him a great big hug. We have all been friends for many years and he was responsible for my hubby and I originally meeting. I consider him to be my 'honorary big brother', love him to bits.
So subsequently there is no update for you today on the case but I promise to return after the weekend with the finished article.

Until then, I hope you all have a lovely weekend and enjoy some more sunshine, x
