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.

Introducing Mr and Mrs Snowman

What else can you do when you've got 8" of snow to shift.... and of course every snow couple needs a dog.

So that my little helper wouldn't get cold hands, Grandma had to quickly knit up a pair of mitts as she'd left her gloves at school....duh!
These were knitted in Sirdar Crofter DK and are fabulously soft and just the job for building snowmen. Although she didn't.....Oh no. She spent her time in the garden making snowballs round the back of the house and then stomping through to the front to throw them at Grandad who was again trying to dig my car out.....

And here are a couple of cards I wanted to share with you that were given to me by two crafting gals. The top one from my crafting buddy in Perth and the bottom one from Cath of Inky Fingers blog. Thanks ladies.
See you all soon, x


  1. There isn't anything much more fun than throwing snowballs at your Grandpa, glad you all had a good time.

  2. Great snow people and love the cards.
