- cockney blonde
- 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.

A little bit of Stazon does youn good...
In the absence of anything else and in line with my New Year Resolution, I thought I'd share with you a card I made at our recent craft group.
Its a technique I originally learned from Cath Wilson and I've revisited it a couple of times and am always amazed by the vibrant and different results that can be achieved.
The flower was strategically placed to cover a mishap...
Hope you are all keeping warm in this cold weather. We have about 6" of snow on our little 'estate' and as yet I haven't ventured out in the car. Clearly the wrong time of year to have got rid of my 4 x 4 and I don't want to scratch my 'new' car. Fingers crossed we are able to travel to Leicester on Monday for a wedding.
