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.

Another wet day...

Good Afternoon Bloggers. After a reasonably nice but chilly weekend the heavens have now opened and the sky looks full to bursting.

I'm sharing with you this quick and simple card which I made as part of the stash before we moved into our caravan. I know the lovely lady has received it so it was safe to share on here.

DH is due home tomorrow evening and I can't wait. Someone to do the early morning dog walk, lol. He phoned me earlier to say they had been to Bethlehem today, not on donkeys I hasten to add.

Before that though myself and #2 Son are off to visit my lovely friend Neet tomorrow afternoon. No doubt we will be comparing hospital scars over a cuppa.



  1. Hi Alison, your card is gorgeous. The heavens opened here too in Warrington. I hope you are keeping well.
