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.

Just a Card

Evening Bloggers. Thought I'd share this quick and easy card I made for a very special lady across the pond who celebrated her birthday this past weekend. A bit of stamping, some DP, brads and a letter.....

Finally got my car back today and it looks as though it was just the oil seal that had been damaged following the previous problem, so fingers crossed we're off on the road again tomorrow. This time we're hitching up in Durham, I love that City. We're visiting friends in the Borders on Thursday, they've just had a new baby. Then its our hawaiian themed wedding on Friday and on Saturday I'm off to visit my crafting Hartlepool pal, can't wait as it seems an age since I last saw her.

Had a GP review and physio review today...still no work for me :((( Need to get some more strength in this knee. If I had an office based job it wouldn't be a problem but seeing as I haven't ...

Oh well, I'll just have to fit some more knitting, crochet, journalling, cards etc, etc into my days inbetween my exercises.

BTW I have been reading your blogs but just not having enough time to comment at the moment. Please don't think I've been ignoring you.

I'll be back with you again asap, x
