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.

52 Weeks of Happiness - 4/52

This is something you can start at anytime. Click on the link to read about this lovely idea started by Jen

Basically, every week you show 4 pictures of things that have made you smile, made you happy...you get the idea
You can start at anytime and I'm sure it doesn't matter if you miss a week, or two.
I've numbered mine as week 4 (even though this is my first week) on the basis that its the end of the 4th week of the year.
So here are my 4 piccies for this week

1. Our grandee doing some 'on foot' dancing with one of my Mum's nurses
2. My new craft result - wine coasters which I'll tell you more about another day

3. The happy couple outside their snow covered wedding venue

4. In case you missed them first time round - those fab shoes

Join in the fun and bring a smile to more faces.



  1. Hi Alison, How are you doing? All great I hope :)
    I thought it was about time I got back into blogland. Lol at whats going on, seems quite a few cardmakers are trying different crafts. I'm loving my sewing and my little business is going really well. Recently learnt to crochet and certainly got me hooked.
    Hugs Emma x
